There are more insights on major roles set to be played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brat Pitt or Tom Cruise.
As updated by Variety's Justin Kroll, the now-disgraced actor-director Roman Polanski will be featured as a prominent character in Quentin Tarantino's 1969 project. It will be in the same framework as Inglourious Basterds, mixing fictional characters and events with real-life people.
This news should not come as a surprise because one of the movie's key events is the Manson murder, in which actress Sharon Tate was a victim. Polanski's wife and on-screen muse at the time, she was killed in their shared house.
Tarantino makes sure Polanski will be played by a Polish actor while Margot Robbie is eyed for the role of Tate.
Also, the role aimed for Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt is of a stuntman--a suitable gig for the charismatic Cruise, and Leonardo DiCaprio's washed-up TV star is Tate and Polanski's neighbor.
