I’m really anxious with the way he’s gonna portray Sharon’s murder. I just hope he doesn’t turn it into a joke because everything about her story is beyond tragic
That’s why I’m holding my breath for this film. Tarantino is notorious for portraying violence in a “meh” if not comical manner. If Tate’s murder is portrayed like that, there WILL be a massive campaign to make sure this film is snubbed by the Academy across the board. And given that this film is being made at the height of #MeToo, that campaign may well succeed. Tarantino shoots that scene at his own peril.August 6, 2018 at 9:23 am #1202603637
Her murder won’t be depicted on screen according to Tate’s sister who gave her public blessing to the movie.August 6, 2018 at 2:38 pm #1202603867
Margot looks stunning wow. She’s coming for that Oscar!August 8, 2018 at 8:44 am #1202605330
I hope hope hope Tarantino knows the pot-holes to avoid with this film. Depicting Sharon Tate’s death is a no-go. There are so many downsides and not many upsides. We know it was horrifying. We don’t need to see it.
What gives me some comfort is who is signed up. Pitt, DiCaprio, Robbie… these are all folks with plenty to lose, and I doubt very sincerely that they’d take their valuable time and talent and bet it all on a sick horse.
Here’s my plot prediction, having read nothing about the plot at all: Tarantino either (a) depicts a rather realistic portrayal of Hollywood during that time or (b) far more likely, he does a BASTERDS treatment on the Manson cult. By that I mean, this actor (DiCaprio) and stunt-man (Pitt) find themselves in a situation where they have to stop playing heroes and actually become heroes, killing the Manson cult members and either saving Sharon Tate’s life or avenging her death. If Tarantino’s going to approach something like the Manson Family with violence, I’d hope he’d be smart enough to make it violence directed at the cult, not enacted by them.
And that plot gets me excited. Now watch me be totally wrong about it.August 8, 2018 at 10:43 am #1202605509
I have to say that I’m a little surprised by all the hand-wringing going on by those following the project. Tarantino may be a provocateur, but he hardly, if ever, wallows in poor judgment (the actual quality of his work, though, is a different matter). And as someone above said, if the film has gotten the blessing of Tate’s sister, what more is there to worry about at this point?August 22, 2018 at 5:29 pm #1202614773
Dunham will be playing a character named Gypsy. Hawke has been cast as the fictional character Flower Child and Izzo will portray Francesca Capucci, a glamorous Italian movie star.September 7, 2018 at 8:45 am #1202625668
I wonder if Burt was able to do his filming before he passed.

He didn’t. Filming for Reynolds was supposed to start at the end of the month. New casting news should happen soon.September 27, 2018 at 12:53 pm #1202642512
Bruce Dern is set to replace Burt Reynolds

Should have suspected Dern with past connection to Tarantino. It would have been great to see Burt nail this final role. Oh well.September 28, 2018 at 10:20 pm #1202643185
Dern is such a dull alternative.
