  • Leonardo Di Caprio has signed on to Quentin Tarantino’s next movie but he will NOT be playing Charles Manson

Director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Charles Manson-era movie just added some star power with five-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio signing on, Deadline reports.

While exact plot details are being kept under wraps, the movie has been described as a 1969-set ensemble piece that in some way involves Manson and the murder of Sharon Tate. So at the very least, the movie will feature some of the murder victims, if not the actual murders.

Other big names may make it into the film like Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, to fulfill two "meaty male roles". It will be DiCaprio's first major role since winning an Oscar for The Revenant (holy shit, remember The Revenant?), and his second collaboration with Tarantino, following Django Unchained.

'If anyone tried to duplicate what [Quentin] does I think they would be sued for copyright infringement, ' DiCaprio - who almost played Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds - told EW back in 2012. The role was eventually filled by Christoph Waltz, which won him an Oscar.

The Sony Pictures movie is to be released on August 9, 2019, exactly 50 years after Tate and four friends were stabbed or shot dead.

The pair last worked together on 2012's Django Unchained, when DiCaprio took a turn as shady plantation owner Calvin J. Candie. He had been serving a life sentence for ordering the murders of nine people including actress Sharon Tate.

DiCaprio, an Oscar victor in 2016 for "The Revenant", will play an aging actor in the untitled film.
