Quentin Tarantino's second to last film, which revolves around the murders of serial killer Charles Manson, has just received a release date. Thematically enough, the filmmaker and his team have chosen the anniversary of the murders to debut the film.
Heading into theaters on August 9th, the yet-to-be-titled project will make its fall debut with a string of A-list actors in talks to be featured, including Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and Brad Pitt in the starring role.
Read below to get the rest of the scoop on the Manson film and catch up on the development of his even newer Star Trek project with producer J.J. Abrams.

With Christopher Nolan currently wowing the film world with Dunkirk, all eyes have turned back to Quentin Tarantino after details of a potential new project leaked online.
Two years on from The Hateful Eight and five years after Django Unchained, the iconic filmmaker is rumored to be working on a true-story feature based around serial killer Charles Manson.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Tarantino is currently putting the finishing touches to a script about the leader of the 'Manson Family', with two actors already in mind for the movie: namely, Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt.
Rumored to be taking the reins on production are brothers and frequent Tarantino collaborators Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
While nothing is official yet, The Hollywood Reporter claims one of the movies' stories will center around Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate, who was killed in 1969 by one of Manson's attackers while eight months pregnant.
The magazine makes it clear, however, that Jennifer Lawrence is not being considered for the Tate role.
As a few sources have pointed out, we shouldn't get too excited about the rumors for the moment. After all, the filmmaker did announce his retirement (for the umpteenth time) after the release of The Hateful Eight.
Following that, he also chatted about the possibility of creating a TV series, a third western or an Australian Bonnie & Clyde... Basically, we'll just have to wait and see.
But if we can believe the hearsay, the Manson movie is apparently set for a 2018 release with Universal.
