Quentin Tarantino is looking to do a film about the Manson murders… That were carried out due to Charles Manson’s delusional end of the world prophecy that he claimed to have found in the lyrics to the song, ‘Helter Skelter’!

That’s right folks, it looks like according to: The Source.

Legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino (Resevoir Dogs), who helped bring us such classics as: Pulp Fiction (1994) with John Travolta (Broken Arrow), Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers), Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard), as well as, True Romance (1993) with Christian Slater (Interview With The Vampire) and Patricia Arquette (A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors) is investigating potentially bringing a very dark story back to the big screen!

It looks like he is exploring the idea of bringing a different look at some of the Manson Family killings to light in a uniquely different sort of way… Now before I explain more I should explain a little bit more about who they were.

The Manson family was a group of people who followed a criminal by the name of Charles Manson…. These followers also believed that Charles Manson could protect them in a perceived apocalypse that Manson thought he forsaw in the lyrics of the Beatles song, ‘Helter Skelter’…

This all happened in the 1960s and was made popular pretty much due to the fact that Charles Manson ordered his followers to murder Sharon Tate (Eye Of The Devil) who was the wife of legendary filmmaker, Roman Polanski (Rosemary’s Baby) as well as a group of friends that were staying with Ms. Tate… And some other people!

Now I mention what happened to Ms. Tate specifically, because if this project gets off the ground, then the story will likely center around the Tate murders…

Bob And Harvey Weinstein, who have produced alot of Mr. Tarantino’s other movies are said to be attached to this one… And A-list talent like: Brad Pitt (Ocean’s 11) and Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class) have already been approached for roles in the movie.

The plan is, is to have pre-production done and filming to start next year!
