Tarantino’s Charles Manson Movie Sounds Downright Incredible
Sony chairman Tom Rothman is a big believer in Quetin Tarantino’s upcoming movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
In fact, he’s hyping it up as the best movie script he’s read in 30 years, according to Deadline. Deadline reported the following:
Di Caprio said he had read the script and thinks it is one of two-time Oscar winning writer Tarantino’s best. Rothman went one further and proclaimed it was the best screenplay he had read in 30+ years in the biz.
On that matter, I once served on a three person jury with Rothman judging the Samuel Goldwyn Screenwriting Awards and, as it turned out, we both agreed down the line the exact order of finish of the five scripts we read. So I tend to trust his judgment on this. Can’t wait.
Details for the movie aren’t completely known, but IMDB describes the plot as, “A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”
I don’t know about you guys, but this makes me pretty excited. The film stars Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. You know that’s a recipe for major success. Those two just can’t do anything other than win. Throw in Tarantino, and I think this movie could be outstanding.
It’s also important to note the cultural impact of Charles Manson. The man’s cult brought pure carnage to Sharon Tate and others, and Manson’s horrific legacy will carry on decades after his death. I can’t wait to see what this trio of superstars puts together.
