Jennifer Lawrence is unlikely to join the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s 2017 movie on the Manson murders, sources reveal. The A-list director is reportedly working on his next film that may star Brad Pitt.
Things are still pretty early for Tarantino’s next movie. At this moment, there are several assumptions about the content of the movie. According to reports, this is the first time Tarantino will work on real-life incidents. The renowned filmmaker is known for his crime-based movies and Westerns.
Quentin Tarantino is working on the script of the movie, which he is going to direct as well. While there were reports that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence were approached for the upcoming movie, one source revealed that JLaw might not be interested in the project.
Actress Sharon Tate’s character is apparently going to play a major part in the movie. Filmmaker Roman Polanski’s wife was killed by Manson in 1969. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lawrence is not considering the role.
Meanwhile, other reports suggest that Quentin Tarantino is already looking for potential actresses to play Tate’s role. The latest buzz is that the master director has approached Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie, according to Deadline. The Australian actress is presently based in London after her marriage with director Tom Ackerley.
There are speculations about Brad Pitt joining the cast of Tarantino’s next movie. The actor has already worked with the ace director in Inglourious Basterds. Tarantino is known for being pretty selective about making movies. In the last 25 years, he has made only nine movies. His last movie, The Hateful Eight, was released on Christmas 2015.
Samuel L. Jackson, with whom Tarantino frequently collaborated in the past, is also likely to play a major role in the Manson murders movie. Jackson played a major character in Pulp Fiction. The 1994 Quentin Tarantino movie has received a cult status for being a landmark crime movie.
Tarantino’s 2017 movie on the Manson murders is expected to have a unique take on the incidents. The director is often accused by his critics of being a provocateur in his movies. Tarantino indicated in his interview with the Entertainment Weekly that he would not give much importance to what people thought about his movies.
Fans would be eager to see what unique angle Tarantino brings to the infamous murders. The principal photography of the movie is expected to start in summer 2018.
