Though DiCaprio infamously cut his hand during filming (and kept going), the role earned him just one of his (many) Oscar nominations.
The upcoming film, Tarantino's ninth, is set to release on August 9, 2019, Deadline reported Friday, exactly 50 years after members of the Manson Family cult murdered actress Sharon Tate and four other guests at her house.
This will mark DiCaprio's first film since winning the Oscar in 2016 for his performance in Alejandro G. Iñárritu's "The Revenant". A ton of resources are being put into this project and it sounds as if it will be one of Tarantino's biggest films of his career. Although Tarantino's work hasn't always been loved by The Academy, he has already won two Oscars to date for his screenwriting. Rather, it will be a Pulp Fiction-esque film that simply takes place at the time of the Manson murders in Hollywood. Margot Robbie, meanwhile, is being eyed for the role of Sharon Tate. DiCaprio previously played a villain in Tarantino's 2012 movie Django Unchained. While the role is said to be "meaty", nearly no specific details have been released about the plot or the character. A deal for Tom Cruise to co-star is also being pursued, a part that was reportedly passed on by Brad Pitt. Business Insider contacted DiCaprio and Tarantino's representatives for confirmation but did not get an immediate response.

The intraparty squabble begins as Senate negotiators announced they have reached a preliminary deal that involves only Dreamers, as DACA recipients are known, and border security, according to Politico .
It will be interesting to see how fast the rest of the cast now comes together, and to see what role DiCaprio has.
This could also stand to be the movie that finally wins Tarantino some major awards for Directing and/or Best Picture.
However, in the same way that InglouriousBasterds wasn't just a movie about Hitler, Tarantino's movie isn't thought to be focused exclusively around Manson or Tate.
