Quentin Tarantino has added another A-lister to his growing ensemble cast for “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”.
After months of speculation, Margot Robbie is in final negotiations to play actress Sharon Tate in Tarantino’s movie about the Manson Family murders. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt have also signed on to the project.
Fresh off her Oscar nomination for “I, Tonya”, Robbie was reportedly offered the role of the late Tate, a rising star in Hollywood and wife to filmmaker Roman Polanski in Tarantino’s film.
Tarantino originally met with Robbie in July of last year to discus the role with her. Now, an official offer has been made and she is in final negotiations to take on the role of Tate.
At eight-and-a-half months pregnant, Tate was murdered in August 1969 by members of the Manson Family cult alongside her friends Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger and Wojciech Frykowski and Steven Parent, who was visiting the caretaker of the property at the time of the murders.
The movie will reunite Robbie with her “Wolf Of Wall Street” co-star DiCaprio who takes the lead role as former Western television star Rick Dalton, Tate’s next door neighbour. Pitt has also signed on to play Dalton’s stunt double, Cliff Booth, as both men find themselves struggling in late 1960s Hollywood.
