'If anyone tried to duplicate what [Quentin] does I think they would be sued for copyright infringement, ' DiCaprio - who almost played Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds - told EW back in 2012. However, confirmation that Leonardo DiCaprio has taken a lead role in his next film is just cream on the strudel.
As to what DiCaprio is doing in the pic, that's even more speculative. It will be DiCaprio's first movie since winning the Oscar for Best Actor thanks to "The Revenant".
The Hollywood Reporter revealed in July of past year that Tarantino was in the final stages of completing the script, and that one of the film's arcs will focus on Sharon Tate, then an actress and the wife of director Roman Polanski. So, if she is tapped for the Tarantino film - she already has experience portraying a real-life person where audiences already know an extensive backstory.
The plot-line of what is being dubbed the "untitled Charles Manson movie" is strictly under wraps - but the website confirmed that Leo will play "an aging actor in the story" that will remind fans of the cult-classic Pulp Fiction.
The release date for the film will mark the 50th anniversary of the murder of Sharon Tate and four others on August 9, 1969. It is set during the time of the Manson murder spree that terrorized Los Angeles in the 1960s and 70s. While the role is said to be "meaty", nearly no specific details have been released about the plot or the character.
Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt have also been offered roles, according to reports. It was widely reported that Tarantino had initially wanted DiCaprio to play Col. Hans Landa in Inglourious Basterds. 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.
