Quentin Tarantino's 1969 Film Includes Roman Polanski as Key Character

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.
