Quentin Tarantino no longer gets to release his Charles Manson movie on the anniversary of Manson's most famous murders

Damn it, people, can’t Quentin Tarantino have one thing go right lately? First, his personal patron Harvey Weinstein gets rightly brought down for his abhorrent treatment of women (with the director admitting he “knew enough” about Weinstein’s behavior to do more than he did); then, Tarantino himself comes under fire…

Dakota Fanning to play Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme in Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

The cast of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is coming together nicely, with A-list stars lining up seemingly by the dozens to play weirdos—both fictional and real-life—running around Hollywood in the fateful summer of 1969.

Harvey Weinstein almost handed Lord Of The Rings off to Quentin Tarantino to cram into a single film

Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings continues to stand as a testament to what you can pull off with sufficient faith in the right filmmaker.

If Quentin Tarantino won't make The Vega Brothers, other people will, damn it

While not as vast as, say, Stephen King’s interconnected web of stories or Kevin Smith’s View Askewniverse, the films of Quentin Tarantino contain enough threads to reveal that they exist in the same universe. Take the Vega Brothers, Vic and Vincent, who were played, respectively, by Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs…

Leonardo DiCaprio is playing a washed-up old cowboy actor in that new Tarantino film

It’s been three years since Leonardo DiCaprio last starred in a feature film, when he pulled down his first Oscar win as a vengeful frontier tracker in 2015's The Revenant. Now, it’s been revealed that his new role, in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, will see DiCaprio sticking to that Old West theme—sort of.

Leonardo DiCaprio to star—but not as Charles Manson—in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Family movie

We’re still not convinced that his proposed Star Trek movie is ever actually going to happen, but plans for Quentin Tarantino’s ninth movie—an as-yet-untitled script that takes place during the Manson Family’s murder spree in the summer of 1969 and, at least tangentially, includes Manson and his followers as…
