Although the film has not yet begun shooting and has no title, several movie studios had been in a bidding war over the rights to the film. Sony won beating out heavy hitters such as Warner Bros. and Paramount for the rights. This will be the first film that Tarantino has released without the Weinstein Company who is now on the verge of bankruptcy following the numerous sexual harassment allegations against one of its founders Harvey Weinstein.

Tarantino is courting several “A” list actors to round out the cast many of who he has worked with before such as Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and actors he has not worked with like Tom Cruise and Margot Robbie David Heyman of the “Harry Potter” franchise is producing the picture.

The Aug. 9, 2019, date will mark the 50th anniversary of the murders of movie star Sharon Tate and her guests, who were visiting her at her home at the time.  None of who were killed were the intended victims as the real targets of the killings, Dennis Wilson of the beach boys and his entourage had moved out.  Manson directed his followers to kill everyone in the home, and this meant the 26-year-old Tate who was pregnant and married to director Roman Polanski, and all of her visitors were doomed. Jay Sebring, 35; Voytek Frykowski, 32; coffee heiress Abigail Folger, 25; and Steven Parent, 18, a friend of Tate’s caretaker all met their fates that night.
