Leonardo DiCaprio Joins Quentin Tarantino's Ninth Feature

Leonardo DiCaprio has accepted a starring role in Quentin Tarantino's ninth film as director, and is expected to close the deal soon, according to Deadline. DiCaprio previously played a villain in Tarantino's 2012 movie Django Unchained.

Previous reports suggested Tarantino was eyeing Margot Robbie, who co-starred with DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, to play Sharon Tate.

The actor is apparently in talks to star in the as-yet-unnamed project, which will be the director's ninth feature film.

The film is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and '70s and is believed to involve the actress and model Sharon Tate, who was murdered by members of Charles Manson's notorious "family" in 1969.

Tarantino's last film THE HATEFUL EIGHT was a flop at the box office, earning $155.8 million globally, compared to his other films, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and DJANGO UNCHAINED which earned $321.5 million and $425.4 million respectively.

The movie, which will be Tarantino's first without Harvey Weinstein's involvement and will be released through Sony Pictures, is said to be similar to Pulp Fiction in that it has multiple interwoven story strands.

However, DiCaprio's newest role with Tarantino will be the actor's first movie since his Oscar win for The Revenant. After this film, Tarantino next plans to helm an R-rated Star Trek movie, a fact we're all still having a hard time believing.

Sony declined to comment. Business Insider contacted DiCaprio and Tarantino's representatives for confirmation but did not get an immediate response. The untitled film already has a date set for August 9th, 2019 and would mark nearly four years since audiences last saw DiCaprio on screen (he does have other projects in the works, but this will likely be the first one to make it to completion).
