Leonardo DiCaprio Reportedly Starring In Quentin Tarantino's Movie About Charles Manson

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to reunite with his Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino, piquing the interest of every film fan who loves Oscars-worthy team-ups.

The last time Leonardo and the two-time Oscar victor collaborated was in 2012 on Tarantino's critically-acclaimed western, which amassed $425.4M at the worldwide box office.

Tarantino's Manson movie was picked up by Sony in November, the same month that the cult leader died after spending 46 years in prison.

The director is said to be keen to cast Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, the actress who was murdered along with four others in August 1969 by members of the Manson Family. DiCaprio and Robbie previously worked together on The Wolf of Wall Street.

According to Deadline, the 43-year-old Oscar victor nabbed one of the "two meaty male roles" circled by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, which was referred to only as an 'aging actor'. How much focus will be on the Manson murders themselves has yet to be revealed because Tarantino is keeping the film's storyline under wraps.

If the rumors are anything to go by, then this movie might not just have DiCaprio, but an star-studded ensemble.

Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise have also been rumoured to be attached to the project, which is apparently set to involve two main male roles. Variety is reporting that Tarantino also wants Al Pacino in the movie, and that the filmmaker has even written a role in the movie specifically for the veteran actor. It will be DiCaprio's first major role since winning an Oscar for The Revenant (holy shit, remember The Revenant?), and his second collaboration with Tarantino, following Django Unchained.

The release date coincides with the 50th anniversary of Tate's murder at the hands of the Manson family.

Tarantino and DiCaprio are partnering up once again.
