Quentin Tarantino has finished work on the script for his ninth film and it’s already shaping up to be something extraordinary.
The script is currently doing the rounds with all the major studios and has already drawn comparison with Pulp Fiction both thematically and structurally.
It was previously reported that the 54-year-old was putting together a film focusing on the infamous Manson Family murders.
However, a report from Deadline indicates that the script, which is currently being referred to as #9, will be a multi-threaded story with the Manson murders just one of several stories set to play out.
#9 will be set in Los Angeles, in and around the 1960s and early 1970s and has already attracted interest from several big names.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and Brad Pitt all all thought to have held discussions with Tarantino about starring in the film.
Margot Robbie is also rumoured to be interested in appearing in the film, with reports previously suggesting the Wolf of Wall Street actress was being lined up for the part of a fictionalised version of Sharon Tate.
Tate was one of the five people murdered during the 1969 incident that saw members of Manson’s family invade the home she shared with her husband Roman Polanskia in California. Tate was pregnant at the time of her death.
Tarantino is currently shopping the script around Hollywood after severing ties with Miramax and The Weinstein Company in the wake of the allegations levelled at Harvey Weinstein.
