The title is as yet unknown, but the project has been written by Tarantino, who will also direct. Harvey and Bob Weinstein are also involved.

Tarantino has reportedly approached Brad Pitt, who worked with the director on Inglourious Basterds for a starring role, as well as Jennifer Lawrence, with a view of shooting next year.

Apparently the story will focus around the 1969 murder of Sharon Tate, the actress wife of director Roman Polanski, as well as the formation of Charles Manson's infamous cult.

It is of course a tricky subject for A-listers to attach their name to, and an insider told the Reporter than Lawrence isn't too keen on the idea.
