DiCaprio in Tarantino's Manson movie

Leonardo Di Caprio to star in movie about Charles Manson

Leonardo DiCaprio will star in a movie set around the Charles Manson murders, Hollywood entertainment publications reported on Friday, but he will not play the role of the American cult leader.

Plot details have not been released but Quentin Tarantino said in November that it was not a biographical movie but a story set during the summer of 1969.

Academy award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio's is in talks to star in the now untitled project about American criminal Charles Manson and the Manson Family murders directed by Quentin Tarantino. The Titantic actor being cast as an older actor carries a bit of irony.

The pair previously collaborated on 2012's Django Unchained. Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were rumored to play two lead male actor roles around the same time reports came out of DiCaprio possibly joining the cast.

Baguette a load of this: Macron wants United Nations recognition for French bread
The bakers say it is not just the name and shape, but the recipe and ingredients that need to be enshrined. Artisan breadmakers have voiced concern about mass-produced imitations.

Tarantino is understood to have asked Robbie to play Tate, the young "star of the future" who was stabbed 16 times by one of Manson's followers.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie last worked together in The Wolf of Wall Street. Based on that description, you could assume DiCaprio will play the actor, and be the main focus of the film. Yet, after a bevy of sexual assault allegations were levied at executive Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino chose to take his film to Sony Pictures.

Manson, who died in November a year ago, was the mastermind behind the brutal slayings of pregnant actor Sharon Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski, and six other people in August 1969.

The movie will be the first Tarantino film to be released without the Weinstein Company following allegations by more than 70 women of sexual misconduct against its former chief executive Harvey Weinstein.
