Quentin Tarantino’s movie on Charles Manson has given a release date

According to a report by Hollywood reporter, Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson themed a project and planned to release it on 9th of August 2019. This date marks special because it is being the fiftieth death anniversary of Sharon Tate.  The Tate murders were a series of killings conducted by members of the Manson Family on August 8–9, 1969.

Sharon Marie Tate Polanski was an American actress and model. She played small television roles and was featured in fashion magazines as a model and cover girl. Gradually Tate was hailed as one of the Hollywood’s most promising newcomers in 1960s.

She made her film debut in 1966 with the occult-themed “Eye of the Devil”. Her performance in cult classic film “Valley of the Dolls” as Jennifer North in the 1967 was most remembered by people, with which she earned a Golden Globe Award nomination. Tate’s last completed film, 12+1 was released posthumously in 1969, with the actress receiving top billing.

Tate was married to a director and her co-star Roman Polanski on January 20 1968. On August 9, 1969, Tate and four others were murdered by members of the Manson Family in the home, where she stay with Polanski. At the time she stabbed to death, Tate was eight and a half months pregnant.

Tate’s mother went on to say that the law would “help transform Sharon’s legacy from murder victim to a symbol of victims’ rights”. The Manson Family killed around seven members, including Tate, Rosemary and Leno LaBianca, the celebrity hair stylist Jay Sebring, and Abigail Folger a coffee empire heiress.

Meanwhile, Manson died last month at the age of 83. He passed away of natural causes in hospital on November 20. He was sentenced to death in 1971 for his part in the Manson Family murders, but his conviction was eventually commuted into a life sentence. He remained imprisoned in California until his death.

The director’s ninth movie will be set in 1969 and is reported to be based around the Manson Family murders, but he has previously told reporters it will not be a biopic. The movie’s rights have been bagged by Sony Pictures, which stepped in after the exit of Tarantino’s long-time producer, Harvey Weinstein.

“Tarantino’s movie is described as a 1969-set ensemble piece that in some way involves Manson and the murder of Tate,” The Hollywood Reporter said. “Sony’s pickup came with no actors attached, but overtures have been made to such A-listers as Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.”
