Quentin Tarantino loves to borrow from iconic directors and films, but now another director is borrowing from him. Damon Herriman, who recently signed on to play Charles Manson in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, will also play Charles Manson for David Fincher in the second season of Mindhunter.
Margot Robbie’s name has been dropped in virtually every news story about Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The director’s ninth film, which takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, features a fictional version of Sharon Tate — the former model who was nine months pregnant with husband Roman Polanski’s baby when she was murdered by Charles Manson’s followers. Robbie has long been Tarantino’s top pick to play Tate, and it looks like he’s getting his wish.
Quentin Tarantino’s untitled Manson Family murders (Manson murder-adjacent? Murder-ish?) project has officially lined up its first big name: Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor will reunite with the Django Unchained filmmaker for his next big project, which is set in Los Angeles in the late ’60s at the time of the murders carried out by Charles Manson’s followers.
