Why Quentin Tarantino's Manson movie could hit a roadblock

Why Quentin Tarantino's Manson movie could hit a roadblock

But Sharon's sister Debra Tate, 64, says she's clear in her own mind which of the accomplished actresses should get the gig, and it's not Oscar victor JLaw.

"They're both extremely accomplished actresses but my pick would have to be Margot, simply because of her physical beauty", the sister tells TMZ.

"I feel that Mr. Tarantino needs to reach out to me as I don't know that he's aware, but I own Sharon's intellectual licensing", she explained.

Her reasons against casting Lawrence seem to be superficial: "I don't think as much of Jennifer Lawrence-not that I have anything against her, but she..."

Quentin Tarantino is eyeing his next project.




"And that's a awful thing to say, but I have my standards". Not that I have anything against her, but she just...

If the Manson-Tate project does become Tarantino's next film, it becomes unique in that it will be his first movie to be based on true events.

Debra also told TMZ she has some concerns about the Kill Bill filmmaker's plans to make a film about the killings, particularly how he might portray her late sister on screen. It is possible the actress is circling the role of one of Manson's more prominent followers like Leslie Van Houten, Patrice Krenwinkel and Susan Atkins.

The trade reports that the film could revolve are Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969. One option could be telling the story of the early days of Manson's cult.

Brad Pitt and Samuel L. Jackson are the two male stars being linked to the movie, which is due to begin filming next year. They have also reported that long-term friends and collaborators, Harvey and Bob Weinstein will join Tarantino to bring the movie to life.
