Bart & Fleming: What Leo Plays In Tarantino Film; Why Gender Argument On Wahlberg/Williams Was Wrong
Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business. Fleming: Whether it’s Hollywood industry news or sexual harassment allegations, the speed at which trade journalism takes place right now can be dizzying. So I’d like to add to the story Deadline broke last week, when Leonardo DiCaprio told Quentin Tarantino he would make his next film…

'Hit-Girl' Covers "Glamour"

Sneak Peek images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz aka 'Hit-Girl' from the "Kick-Ass" movie series, in "Glamour" magazine:

"The way I look at it is, I’m trying to start conversations," said Moretz. "You might not agree with my opinions, and that’s great—I would love to talk about it."

"With movies like 'Kick-Ass', 'Carrie' and 'Let Me In', I was able to push boundaries at a really young age. Now that I’m able to get projects funded, curate scripts, and make movies, it means a lot to me to go against gender norms. My biggest thing now is making gender-equalizing movies, where you can put a male actor or a female actor in that role, and it would work the same way.

"The word 'feminism' meant something very different when I was 13. I had four older brothers and a single mom,

Everyone Should Take Quentin Tarantino’s No Sleep On Set Rule Seriously

So it would appear that everyone that works with Quentin Tarantino should take his ‘no sleeping on set’ rule very, Very seriously. There’s a good reason why too.

One of Tarantino’s foremost rules on his set, and one that carry’s the most importance just because of what will happen if you break it, is that you don’t fall asleep.

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Will Be Director Doug Liman's Next Movie?
We've been talking about it for years, but are we actually going to see Edge of Tomorrow 2 happen? It's starting to sound much more likely. And, if all goes well, it could be director Doug Liman's next movie. But that is a relatively big if at the moment. Though, it sounds like some of the major challenges facing the sequel have been worked out.

Doug Liman recently appeared at the TCA's to promote his upcoming YouTube series, Impulse. While speaking with Collider, the director of Edge of Tomorrow gave an update on the status of the sequel and revealed that scheduling issues, which were currently a big issue, aren't really a problem anymore. It's a matter of getting the script done. Here's what Liman had to say about it.

"We're just working on the script... [We're no longer working on scheduling issues], now it's down to we have a window where we could go do it,

Quentin Tarantino is Also Looking to Cast Al Pacino in His Manson Family Movie

For some reason, I never really imagined that Quentin Tarantino would ever work with Al Pacino but it looks like there's a chance that it might happen. According to Variety, the director is interested in casting the actor in his upcoming ninth film that is set in 1969.

Last week it was announced that Leonardo DiCaprio was officially cast in the film as an actor character in the story, and the director has also asked Margot Robbie to take on the role of Sharon Tate, but she has yet to accept the offer. He's also looked at casting Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in another lead male role.

The untitled film is described as being a Pulp Fiction-esque type movie set in the 1969 Los Angeles during the summer of the Manson murders. According to a previous report, the story focuses on "a male TV actor who’s had one hit

The film will mark DiCaprio’s first on-screen role since his Oscar-winning turn in The Revenant. The star – who previously worked with Tarantino on Django Unchained – is set to play an aging actor, presumably the one referred to in the brief plot description:

DiCaprio Signs on for Tarantino’s Manson Murders Movie ‘Helter Skelter’

Without question, Quentin Tarantino is one of the most respected and talented filmmakers working today. Although he is hardly as prolific as some of his contemporaries, he’s more than made up for that fact by putting out a string of highly acclaimed and insatiably popular films: nearly every one of them a certified hit. In recent years, a considerable amount of speculation and circulated the filmmaker. In a 2016 interview, the writer-director swore that he would retire after producing his tenth film. Not counting films that he only partially directed – like the underrated Grindhouse or the ever-popular Sin City

Leonardo DiCaprio in Talks for Tarantino’s Manson Murder Film

Leonardo DiCaprio may soon be reunited with director Quentin Tarantino. According to THR, the Oscar-winning actor who starred in Tarantino’s 2012 ‘Django Unchained‘ is in talks to sign on for a role in Tarantino’s next film based on the Manson family murders.

The upcoming film is said to be something along the lines of an ‘Inglorious Bastards’-style in the sense that it is loosely based on a tragic and world changing moment in history. In 1969, Charles Manson ordered his group of followers known as the Manson Family to invade the 10050 Cielo Drive home in Los Angeles and murder whomever was there and to make it look like it was the beginning of a race war. At the time the home belonged to director Roman Polanski and his pregnant wife Sharon Tate. The Manson family broke into the home and tortured and murdered Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and three of Tate’s friends,

Leonardo DiCaprio Locked In For Quentin Tarantino’s Charles Manson Movie

After months of rumors, Leonardo DiCaprio is now confirmed to be reuniting with Quentin Tarantino for his upcoming movie set around the Manson family murders. Precisely what this film is about remains a mystery, as Tarantino has confusingly said that it’s not actually about the Manson murders, despite Manson victim Sharon Tate reportedly playing a central role in the narrative (and the film releasing on August 9th, the date she was killed).

Furthermore, the director has famously said he’ll only ever helm ten movies in his career, and as this will be his ninth, the film is currently being referred to as #9 in promotional circles. Whatever the content of it is, it’s recently kicked off an almighty bidding war amongst studios – unsurprisingly.

All of Tarantino’s past work has been distributed by The Weinstein Company and, well…nobody wants that guy’s name stuck on the front of their movie these days,

Leonardo DiCaprio officially cast in Tarantino's new film

David Crow Jan 15, 2018

Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to Quentin Tarantino's next movie, but he will notbe playing Charles Manson.

Leonardo DiCaprio has officially committed to star in Quentin Tarantino’s next film, which has been set-up at Sony Pictures with a 2019 release date already scheduled.

It’s been well-known that Tarantino has been courting DiCaprio—as well as Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Samuel L. Jackson—for lead roles in his yet untitled and self-described 'ninth' movie (he counts both volumes of Kill Bill as one picture). However, the confirmation via Deadline of DiCaprio signing on brings new interesting details, including that Dicpario will be playing an “aging actor” getting by in the summer of 1969. This should be of interest to Tarantino and DiCaprio fans, many of whom speculated that Tarantino’s Django Unchained villain was circling the role of Charles Manson himself.
