Quentin Tarantino Developing New Film About Charles Manson [Video]

Quentin Tarantino is taking on the most infamous mass-murderer of all time in his new film. According to new reports coming in from various sources, such as a Variety, Tarantino is expected to make a gritty new film in his unique and truly original film style that only he can portray, this time to give his dedicated fans a new perspective on the infamous Charles Manson murders that took place at the end of the 1960s and contributed to the decline of the hippy counter-culture era.

Although there have been many different filmmakers and television producers that have taken on the story of Charles Manson and his happy-go-lucky cult of followers, commonly referred to as “The Family,” the directorial and storytelling style of Quentin Tarantino is all but guaranteed to bring the most engrossing and truly dramatic vision of the horrifying true Charles Manson events to date.

Even though Quentin Tarantino is more well known for his all-fiction taste in the films he makes, he has already tackled one of history’s biggest events, World War II during the Nazi occupation of Frances, in the film Inglourious Basterds. That film, as most may attest, was extremely graphic and packed no punches in regard to content and how it was presented. After it completed its box office run, the film turned out to be a critical and commercial success for Tarantino.

Although there were many aspects to Inglourious Basterds that were true, the Quentin Tarantino film was a fictional version of events that portrayed Adolf Hitler as being assassinated at a theater in France during a movie, which ironically coincided with another fictional storyline that he was betrayed by one of his most trusted and deviant officers. It makes one wonder what he plans to do with Charles Manson.

Bob and Harvey Weinstein are attached to the new Quentin Tarantino film about Charles Manson, but there has been no other news as to who will portray the key players in the movie. Also, if Inglourious Bastards is any indicator, fans of Tarantino can expect this Charles Manson film to play out in a gritty, true-to-life, but fictional manner.

But still, details of the Quentin Tarantino film about Charles Manson are vague at the moment and Variety reported that their sources have only revealed this little piece of information at this time. As more time goes by and details start to take shape, Quentin Tarantino himself might be the first to announce certain plot points about the Charles Manson film that his fans are sure to get excited about.
