The director has reportedly already written his next project, which he also plans to direct, which will focus on the Manson family murders.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence, are said to be under consideration for prominent roles in Tarantino's latest feature.

Manson and other members of his cult were sentenced to life imprisonment, where he remains to this day aged 82. Tate, who starred in television and film roles, was identified by police as one of five victims found slain in her Benedict Canyon estate August 9, 1969 in California.

The "Pulp Fiction" director is reportedly finishing up the movie's script and is ready to move forward with casting.

Jennifer Lawrence is unlikely to join the cast of Quentin Tarantino's 2017 movie on Manson murders, sources reveal. If his Manson family project comes off, this will be his first film based on true events. Which promises to be even more gruesome, as those murders occurred when Manson's followers entered Tate's home and used guns and knives to brutally murder her (she was eight months pregnant at the time) and four others inside. There are also rumors that Tarantino wants Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate.

Quentin Tarantino's next film will be based on the Manson family, the notorious quasi-commune which was responsible for the brutal killings of actor Sharon Tate (Roman Polanski's wife), and an assassination attempt at President Gerald Ford, during 1960s.

Quentin Tarantino's next film will explore one of the most infamous murders of all time. Tarantino hopes to shoot in the summer of 2018, which would position him well for a karma-ruining opening on the 50 anniversary of the Cielo Drive murders the summer after that.

One thing that sucks about this is that when info about The Hateful Eight (and specifically the script) leaked online in 2014, QT vowed not to make the film at all.
