Ever since news first surfaced about Tarantino’s latest Manson-focused movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it was rumored that actress Margot Robbie would be the frontrunner for the role of Sharon Tate, the actress who was murdered on August 9, 1969.

Throughout months and months of drama involving Tarantino moving over to Sony, and continuous and consistent reporting of the film, Robbie has been one consistent throughout, even if she was never officially confirmed.

More recently, it was reported that Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have officially been cast in the flick, and according to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, who broke the Pitt and DiCaprio news, Robbie is still up for the role of Sharon Tate.

Kroll also stated that Tarantino has also met with a number of other actors for supporting roles, and now that Pitt and DiCaprio have been cast, those others should fall into place very soon. With that in mind, it seems only a matter of time that Robbie herself signs on that dotted line, and in addition to a Tarantino film being quite the feather in her cap, it would mark her first time sharing the screen with DiCaprio since her breakout role in The Wolf of Wall Street.
