Leonardo DiCaprio Officially Cast in New Quentin Tarantino Movie

Leonardo DiCaprio looks set to star in Quentin Tarantino's new film, set around the time of the Charles Manson murders. After much buzz about the project, rumored to have a wider appeal than Tarantino's previous effort, The Hateful Eight, Sony Pictures emerged the victor, granting the film a $100 million budget and a prime slot in the summer schedule.

The film is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and '70s and is believed to involve the actress and model Sharon Tate, who was murdered by members of Charles Manson's notorious "family" in 1969.

Leonardo DiCaprio's next acting role may be in a Quentin Tarantino movie. DiCaprio and Tarantino last worked together on "Django Unchained". The murder of Tate and her four friends somehow factors into the plot, which has been teased as resembling the multi-narrative structure of "Pulp Fiction".

DiCaprio's exact role isn't known yet, aside from the detail that he'll play an aging actor, according to Deadline. The deal is expected to close soon, and this will become DiCaprio's first film since he won the Oscar for The Revenant.

Sony declined to comment on the most recent casting news.
