Matt Smith Will Play Charles Manson in 'Charlie Says'

Matt Smith will play Charles Manson in an upcoming movie called Charlie Says, directed by Mary Harron.

The upcoming film is based on source material from Ed Sanders‘ 1971 bestseller The Family, as well as The Long Prison Journey of Leslie Van Houten by Karlene Faith, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Suki Waterhouse will be joining the cast as well, along with Hannah Murray, Marianne Rendon, Cara Gugino, Kaylie Carter and Merritt Wever.

Charlie Says will focus on the three women who were sentenced to death in Charles Manson’s (Smith) murder case. When the death penalty was lifted, their sentence became life imprisonment. One young graduate student, Karlene Faith (Wever), was sent in to teach them, and through her the film will follow their transformations as they face the reality of their horrific crimes.

The film is set to shoot in Los Angeles this spring.
