After much buzz about the project, rumored to have a wider appeal than Tarantino's previous effort, The Hateful Eight, Sony Pictures emerged the victor, granting the film a $100 million budget and a prime slot in the summer schedule.

Leonardo DiCaprio's next acting role may be in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Variety reports that the structure will be similar to Pulp Fiction's with an ensemble approach.

The pair previously worked together on the phenomenally popular, The Wolf of Wall Street.

According to Deadline, the 43-year-old Oscar victor nabbed one of the "two meaty male roles" circled by Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, which was referred to only as an 'aging actor'.

The upcoming film, Tarantino's ninth, is set to release on August 9, 2019, Deadline reported Friday, exactly 50 years after members of the Manson Family cult murdered actress Sharon Tate and four other guests at her house. The Academy Award-winning actor is in talks to star in the now untitled project about Charles Manson and the Manson family murders. Margot Robbie, meanwhile, is being eyed for the role of Sharon Tate.

Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise have also been rumoured to be attached to the project, which is apparently set to involve two main male roles.

Sony declined to comment on the most recent casting news.

The movie will be Leonardo's first movie since his role in The Revenant which won him his first Academy Award.
