Quentin Tarantino's next cinematic foray looks to be a cozy return to the world of "Pulp Fiction," at least judging by the newly revealed synopsis. Set in Los Angeles during the late 1960s, and having the Charles Manson killings serving only as the backdrop of the film, the film is said to be about a failed actor and his stunt double looking to make it into the movie biz.  As QT recently clarified: “It’s not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.”
Sony Pictures won, over the weekend, the distribution rights to the film, which will cost them around $100 million. We also know that Margot Robbie is being sought for the role of Sharon Tate, and Deadline has mentioned that the two male lead roles are being circled around by no less than Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio, all of whom have been, presumably, in heated discussions with Tarantino.
The synopsis, thanks to Vanity Fair:
Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie, according to a source who read the script, focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
