Leonardo DiCaprio is re-teaming up with Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino for an all-new film based on the—wait for it—Manson family murders.

DiCaprio will portray an aging actor in Tarantino’s highly anticipated movie about the infamous 1969 murder of Sharon Tate, according to Deadline. This will be the actor’s first role since he won his Oscar for Best Actor in The Revenant in 2016.

No further details about Tarantino’s project have been released, but we do know the film will give a Pulp Fictionlike glimpse into the days leading up to the Los Angeles murders by Charles Manson’s infamous cult.

Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt are in talks to join the cast. Tarantino, David Heyman (Harry Potter) and Shannon McIntosh (The Hateful Eight) are signed on to produce the movie. 

Tarantino’s untitled Manson project will hit theaters on August 9, 2019 (the 50th anniversary of Tate’s murder). Gulp, this is going to be good.
