News on Quentin Tarantino's ninth film is really starting to hit the interwebs over the past few days and boy do we have some cool new information on this highly anticipated film.
While the film is still untitled, we do know the film will star Leonardo DiCaprio and we'll be set in the 1960s set to the back drop of the infamous Manson Family murders. We now have our first real information about the plot of the film.
Deadline's Mike Fleming has found some of the most detailed information about the plot yet.
Here's what Fleming said:
"What he plays, more specifically, is an actor who had his own Western show, Bounty Law, that ran on the air from 1958 to 1963. His attempt to transition to movies didn’t work out and in 1969 — the film is set at the height of hippy Hollywood movement– he’s guesting on other people’s shows while contemplating going to Italy which has become a hotbed for low-budget Westerns. The movie, a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry of Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders, will now get busy with casting."
As a bonus, Deadline's Mike Fleming, also had this to say:
"I’d keep an eye on Tom Cruise, who might well surface as the other big male superstar in Tarantino’s film."
While Fleming is always spot on with his scoops now a days. I'd also put money on Brad Pitt and Al Pacino, along with a ton of other Tarantino regulars being announced very soon.
