A new Quentin Tarantino movie is always an event, not only is he one of our greatest living directors, but he also brings major talent to the table.


Quentin Tarantino film's always attract attention and speculation, but that's especially true for the project Tarantino's working on now. Bidders are in hot pursuit of distribution rights to Quentin Tarantino’s new project, the one that is set in Los Angeles in the late ’60s and early ’70s, with Tarantino hoping hard that Margot Robbie will play the role of Sharon Tate. Having reportedly spoken with his former stars Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio about potential roles, Deadline claims that Tarantino is also considering Tom Cruise for a key role in the film.

There are few confirmed details about the plot, but the script is reportedly set in the late 1960s - early 1970s, and begin production in mid-2018 for a 2019 release. And it will be an R-rated film, like all Tarantino’s directing efforts. Those who’ve read it said the script has heart and a strong commercial appeal, and if there is a film of Tarantino’s it can be best compared to, it would be Pulp Fiction, which also was set in Los Angeles. The film will carry a budget in the range of Django Unchained.

Till now, what we know for sure is that Harvey Weinstein will have nothing to do with it. The producer gave Tarantino his first break in the 1990s, financing QT's critically-acclaimed debut Reservoir Dogs, followed by Pulp Fiction and every one of his films since. But with Weinstein fired from his company and all but expelled from Hollywood, Tarantino is in need of a new producing partner.

Every major studio in Hollywood has jumped at the chance to get into the Tarantino business. According to Deadline, there's a distribution battle over the new film. The site reported that pretty much every major studio was interested in the producing and distributing the movie. The field is "wide open," reported Deadline, though, on Tuesday, Variety claimed that Paramount, Sony, and Warner Bros. are the finalists.
