The 43-year-old actor may be uniting with his Django Unchained collaborator for the upcoming movie, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Although the specific plot details are still being kept under tight wraps, the movie is reportedly set in 1969, and in some way involves Charles and the murder of Sharon Tate.

Sony picked up the rights to the movie after a studio bidding war, and it is set to hit theaters on August 9, 2019 – the 50th anniversary of the murders of Sharon and her friends by the Manson cult followers.

    ? So they will be acting out a story about a story?

  • Galaxy Girl

    Wow, I’m so lost. So Cruise will be able to play Manson, but it’s not about Manson… ?

  • Surfgirl

    Really? Not a huge cruise fan

  • liz4321

    Wow. Imagine an actual human being falling all over himself to get to play a psycho like Charles Manson?! I just can’t imagine being a person that would have any interest in portraying that kind of evil for any amount of money. Just another example of how crazy the world has become. But it shouldn’t surprise me that this kind of behavior is what “Hollywood” represents these days. They have long ago stopped noticing where the line is.

  • Galaxy Girl

    It’s not about Manson, it’s about those around manson.

  • ALD 9000

    This is not a part for Leo, Cruise or Al Pacino…they are all poor actors and do not have the look and skill…now, put James Franco and now were talking Manson. Women have molested him for years with no complaints. Look into Franco’s glistening dark eyes….he’s a prefect Charles Manson..and a LOT better looking than the other three losers. And the role will catapult James Franco to super stardom.

    OT I feel a little bad for nina but she clearly agreed with most of what has been said about her body on here: http://www.justjared.com/2018/01/12/nina-agdal-slams-magazine-for-body-shaming-her-scrapping-her-cover-story/

  • girl93

    It seems that there are no more actresses in Hollywood

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Oh please.
    Judging my the sexually suggestive pics Nina posts of herself on Insta, she has no issues with her body. Her career is going nowhere so she’s now hopped on the socially aware bandwagon. How does someone who announces that she enjoys giving BJs on national TV say with a straight face she’s ‘shy’ and ‘socially anxious’??!

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Great news Leo. But….but….Manson. I dunno.

  • fatalreview2017

    I wonder if Roman was drugging and f*cking 13 year olds when Sharon was pregnant

  • Surfgirl

    I don’t think she has issues with her body. She clearly takes care of herself and is very aware of what her body looks like and where she fits in modeling. However, for someone to be like we want you on the cover and then say nah she doesn’t fit anymore and is not a size too a terrible. She has a sporty body that looks good in pretty much bathing suits and athletic attire. The magazine should’ve already knew that

  • fatalreview2017

    ya know what would be edgy? if QT actually found an aging out of work actor for the part-kind of like what he did for Travolta in Pulp Fiction-there are plenty of the “past over” laying about the gutters of La-La Land-its seems hypocritical and blasé to cast DiCaprio as this person-life should imitate art here-its how QT made his mark-like Glen Campbell if he still lived-he was pathetic enough

  • fatalreview2017

    like Hollyweird cares-did you see the OJ trial with Schwimmer as Kardashian and Cuba Gooding as OJ?-was that a disaster-kardashian was a little shrimpy clothes horse next to a lurching huge OJ in real life-the whole dynamic was lost on that weird relationship with schwimmer taller than Cuba-they did do a good job showing what drooling loathsome fame hores his kids have ALWAYS been

  • also…

    Lol. Yes she’s jumping on the bandwagon because her career went downhill. She never seemed shy before. But certain women are jumping on the whole metoo timesup movement.

  • also…

    Sounds like they weren’t happy with the shoot so they changed their mind. Nothing wrong with that. She still got paid.

  • pppf

    I hate even responding to this since she is so 20-last year. But upon reading it, she said she took a year off due to “social anxieties” even though the situation happened a couple of months ago and she still did the shoot. Soooo, she is either full of sh@t and is trying to get some attention for body shaming (It’s the year of the women being treated badly, why not take full advantage) while posing shirtless and holding her breasts. And she took a year off due to “social anxieties”? Not believing that either. Maybe Leo break up stress or she just a lazy model and can’t get much work outside SI.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    Cuba Gooding Jr. as OJ Simpson has to be one of the worst miscastings of all time.

  • pppf

    Yea, that article sounds a little fishy. Maybe she gained weight and they wanted her to loose some weight.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    Are you also cautious of how Tarantino will handle Manson?

  • also…

    she really took that break up hard if she developed social anxiety. She even got an esa dog. Leo leaves these girls in shambles.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    Yeah way too old.

  • Surfgirl

    I think the ‘year off’ was dating leo because she was barely working. The she got a Esa which I though was ridiculous. I only remember si and some bathing suit brand. But most of the comments we have said about her body and career options she pretty much agreed with on the post. I think the issue is that they knew what they were getting and shot her and instead of saying you know what we are going to go in a different direction they insulted her instead.

  • Surfgirl

    Yep but it sounds like they were trying to put it on her and insult her. Just say you looked it over and will be going in a different direction but thanks anyway for your time.

  • easleo

    Good said… Totaly.

  • pppf

    But that year off included following Leo around and her new boyfriend, Christie Brinkley’s son, around. It is possible she gained weight since we know she probably didn’t work out a lot while with Leo when they were traveling and always seemed to be eating out. She seem to have be following the current BF around too. After over a year, she probably gained a little weight. We all gain weight. It’s tougher as a model because, well, you’re a model and make your living on your looks. It sounds like she did the shoot anyway. Her fluctuation from a sample size, 0-2, to a 6 is not healthy.

  • Galaxy Girl

    Very harsh and judge mental. She has an amazing body. No idea why you think she wouldn’t be able to get work. I hope it’s not you talking about yourself. That really triggered you. Wow.

  • Galaxy Girl

    I think Leo won’t be doing this movie at all for some reason.

  • easleo

    Stfu

  • pandacrze

    She scheduled the Megyn Kelly show next week to speak on body shaming

    (9-10 a.m.) Megyn Kelly TODAY: Model Nina Agdal on body-shaming. Spiritual Renewal series: Dr. Habib Sadeghi, author, The Clarity Cleanse.

  • Surfgirl

    Oh yeah I could never eat out all the time and be a model. I thank god every day that I don’t need to be skinny to do my job. I get to enjoy cookies and read JJ threads lol. The whole size thing isnt totally true. I can be a zero in 1 store and then a 6p in another. Sizes between brands aren’t standard. Also she isn’t runway so she shouldn’t be expected to fit in sample sizes

  • easleo

    She is a famewhore

  • Galaxy Girl

    Crazy intelligent. Learn English yet? I forgot about this troll.

  • easleo

    Hahahahahahhaha… Im not a Troll you are

  • Galaxy Girl

    Cool, I’m eating brownies. Join me.

  • pppf

    Nina. Don’t know what to believe. Like when she said her butt was so big it was constantly knocking things over.

  • pppf

    Huh? lol

  • Galaxy Girl

    Did you see what you wrote???

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    I’m 100% against any vehicle that would glorify, excuse or attempt to ‘humanise’ horror. Esp because the actual victims become almost a footnote and their death/experiences are retold like some damn social experiment, rather than an act of brutality they did not ask to participate in. I just dunno. *shakes head*

  • Galaxy Girl

    Yeah, I think that too. I actually just wanna see Leo in a movie that shows how deep he will and can go. I’d prefer it be based on a fiction story, but he likes to do bio’s.

  • pppf

    There is nothing wrong with Nina’s body. She has a great body for a swimsuit model. I am just reading what she said in the article and remembering some of the stupid things she has said in the past. How would this be talking about me?

  • Johnny Sack-Sacrimony

    creepy old leo

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! Like you – happy to know that he will be working soon – but if they are going to release it on the anniversary of the murders, they are fricking nuts and incredibly insensitive.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! But I do’t think the movie is about Manson, it’s more the story takes place during the time of the killings. When the project was first talked about, I believe it was said that Manson was just a very tiny role and did not get a lot of screen time.

  • liz4321

    It’s no different. Whether it’s about him or those nuts that followed him around, it’s about evil. What they did to that group of people was vicious and difficult to even think about let alone watch and relive again. I don’t find that entertaining and can’t understand how anyone can.

  • HeyYou

    OMG, like none of you have a clue on why movies are made. Fine, let me spell it out for you.. It’s about making money. JLaw is too ugly to play Sharon Tate, who cares, she has a fan base that makes her worth every penny she commands. I mean just look at “Mother!” do you really think it could have made a profit without her? Then let’s look at timing, controversy and the buzz you are already creating. There is no way they will not make a killing off of this.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies!
    So cool to see some of the regulars back now that Leo is actually going to be doing a movie and there is something to talk about besides his personal life! Missed you guys!
    Have an awesome day/night everybosdy

  • Jimbolovey

    I like DiCaprio i just hate to see him make such a bad mistake. No one cares about manson. There have been no less than 5 movies. About the putz and a couple of mini series with big stars in them. Everyone of them sucked and sucked big time. Sad.

  • Galaxy Girl

    I think Leo won’t be doing this movie at all for some reason.

  • Dis gonna be gud

    I totally get where you’re coming from. The film movie should at least give a tribute to the victims in some way.
