Academy award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio's is in talks to star in the now untitled project about American criminal Charles Manson and the Manson Family murders directed by Quentin Tarantino.

DiCaprio previously worked with Tarantino in Western slave-themed film "Django Unchained" (2012) which also earned rave reviews and several nominations at various awards shows. Sources now tell Variety that Tarantino is interested in casting Al Pacino in the film as well.

Margot Robbie has already signed on to play one of the victims, actress Sharon Tate, who was eight months pregnant and married to director Roman Polanski.

Ever since word got out in July 2017 that the famed director's next film would be about the Manson Family murders, Tarantino has been mum on additional details. The film is described as focusing on a TV actor looking to break into the film business, and the murders are a backdrop to that story.
