Unless you count "Inglourious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino has never made a movie based on a true story. Even in "Basterds," Tarantino took real people like Adolf Hitler and completely re-wrote history. With his next movie, it looks like Tarantino will be sticking to something much more recent and something completely different than anything he has done before.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Quentin Tarantino's next movie will be about the Manson Family Murders. More specifically, he will focus on the murders of Sharon Tate and her friends.

Tarantino's new flick

It remains to be seen if the filmmaking style of Quentin Tarantino can work in a movie based on a true story. In his best films like "Pulp Fiction" and "Inglourious Basterds," Tarantino is a very stylistic filmmaker with an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture and film history. However, that might not work in a story that is based on real-life murders where the victim's families are still alive.

However, Tarantino also directed one of the best crime movies of the '90s in "Reservoir Dogs" and proved with "Jackie Brown" that he can tone things down and go gritty while still retaining a modicum of coolness throughout. One just has to wonder if something as horrifying as the Manson Family murders should have any coolness involved at all.

Quentin Tarantino is finishing up the script right now and has some major actors in mind. According to the report, Tarantino wants Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn from "Suicide Squad") to portray Sharon Tate and Brad Pitt to star as the detective investigating the murders. Jennifer Lawrence and Samuel L. Jackson are also on his wishlist.

Quentin Tarantino's career

Ever since the '90s, Quentin Tarantino has been one of the greatest film directors working and has been very choosy about his projects. Since "Reservoir Dogs" in 1992, Tarantino has only made nine movies, although "Kill Bill" was one giant movie split into two films and "Death Proof" was actually half of the "Grindhouse" film.

With that said, Tarantino said that his career is winding down. The director said that he wants to retire and leave while still on top and doesn't want to be one of those film directors who keep making movies when his time is finished. As a result, Quentin Tarantino has said that he plans to just make two more movies and then retire - with the Manson Family murders movie as the first of the two.
