Quentin Tarantino has another film project in the works, according to The Hollywood Reporter, based on the real-life story of the Manson Family murders. The reported project, which is currently untitled, was written by Tarantino, who will also direct.

Plot details are vague, but one possible storyline centers on the events leading up to the grisly 1969 murder of eight-months pregnant Sharon Tate, wife of film director Roman Polanski. Manson sent four of his followers out to the Tate-Polanski home, which he mistakenly thought was the residence of a record producer who snubbed him.

According to article, the project could start filming as early as 2018. The report also mentions the possible involvement of several other Hollywood A-listers, including film moguls Harvey and Bob Weinsten.

Quentin last stopped by the Stern Show in 2015 to talk to Howard about “The Hateful Eight,” script leaks during a “delicate part of the creative process,” and why he still watches movies on VHS. Listen to a clip from that interview (below) and read more here.
