DiCaprio to star in Tarantino's Charles Manson movie

Leonardo DiCaprio's next big role will reportedly be in a Quentin Tarantino film taking place around Charles Manson's cult and the murders they committed in Los Angeles in the late 1960s.

When it comes to new Quentin Tarantino movies, he already has our curiosity and attention.

According to Deadline, the Manson movie will be an ensemble movie (Tarantino's specialty) similar to his hit film Pulp Fiction.

However, true to form, we reckon you'll be able to expect plenty of big names from the big-budget film, with stars including Margot Robbie and Tom Cruise rumoured to be eyed for main roles.

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

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

Deadlinehas also suggested that Tarantino's made offers to Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt for parts, and that he has written a character with old fave Samuel L. Jackson in mind.

The Manson Family mastermind died November 19, age 83, while serving his life sentence for for seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder at the California State Prison in Corcoran. 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.

Sony declined to comment.
