The film is due to start production later this year, with a release date of August 9 2019 earmarked.

"Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognise anymore". But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor ... The year? 1969. the very same one that saw the murder of Valley of the Dolls actress Tate, which was ordered by Charles Manson and carried out by members of his cult.

It appears director Quentin Tarantino's mysterious Manson Family film has cast its Sharon Tate. "And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff".

"Pulp Fiction", Tarantino's 1994 classic, told a collection of interconnected stories. The role would be the latest career high for Robbie, whose turn as disgraced American figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress this year.

Tarantino reportedly met with Robbie to discuss the role last summer, but he never officially offered her the job - until now.

Haryana college teacher shot dead by student
The student reportedly held a grudge against the principal after she scolded him for poor performance in studies. The government college is located in village Pipli of Kharkhoda, Sonipat district where the incident took place.

"There has been a lot of press that the script focuses on Charles Manson and the murder spree he orchestrated, but I'm told that is akin to calling "Inglourious Basterds" a movie about Adolf Hitler, when the Nazi leader was only in a scene or two", Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr.

Tate's real-life sister, Debra, heavily criticised Lawrence's rumoured involvement, saying the Red Sparrow star wasn't "pretty enough" to play her sister.

Sony Pictures is backing Quentin Tarantino's next movie, that already had Leonardo DiCaprio on board.

While plot details for the film are still fairly thin on the ground, it sounds as though it won't focus exclusively around Manson or Tate, but will be more a tapestry of lives set against the late 60s LA backdrop.
