Leonardo DiCaprio’s next big role will reportedly be in a Quentin Tarantino film taking place around Charles Manson’s cult and the murders they committed in Los Angeles in the late 1960s.

The upcoming film, Tarantino’s ninth, is set to release on Aug. 9, 2019, Deadline reported Friday, exactly 50 years after members of the Manson Family cult murdered actress Sharon Tate and four other guests at her house. DiCaprio previously played a villain in Tarantino’s 2012 movie Django Unchained.

According to Deadline, the Manson movie will be an ensemble movie (Tarantino’s specialty) similar to his hit film Pulp Fiction.

DiCaprio’s exact role isn’t known yet, aside from the detail that he’ll play an aging actor, according to Deadline. Margot Robbie has reportedly been asked to play Tate, and Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt may have big roles in the undoubtedly gruesome film.

DiCaprio’s role will be the first the actor has undertaken since his Oscar-winning performance in 2015’s The Revenant. Robbie is in the Oscar conversation this year for her performance in I, Tonya and previously worked with DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Tarantino’s most recent film, The Hateful Eight, was received well by critics, earning an Oscar and a Golden Globe award for its original score. 

Tarantino’s Manson movie was picked up by Sony in November, the same month that the cult leader died after spending 46 years in prison. Production is reportedly starting this year.

Sony declined to comment on the report.

Peter Dinklage won his third Emmy for most outstanding supporting actor in a drama series at the Emmys on Monday.

Dinklage, who plays the iconic Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, was nominated alongside fellow Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays his brother Jaime Lannister.

For his work as Tyrion, Dinklage has been nominated in the category seven times, winning in 2011, 2015, and now 2018.

In his acceptance speech, Dinklage thanked Coster-Waldau, who earned his first Emmy nomination for his work on Game of Thrones this year.

Hopefully both actors survive the final season of Game of Thrones coming in 2019, or at least get one more nomination next year if they do meet their demise.

Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” has won the Grolsch People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF announced at an awards ceremony on Sunday.

The film, which tells the true story of an Italian-American nightclub bouncer (Viggo Mortensen) who serves as the chauffeur for a black pianist (Mahershala Ali) on a tour through the Deep South in the early 1960s, opened at the festival on Tuesday and was an instant hit with audiences and critics, although Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” had been considered the likely winner of the People’s Choice Award.

Runners-up for the award were Barry Jenkins’ lyrical James Baldwin adaptation “If Beale Street Could Talk” and Alfonso Cuaron’s moving memory piece “Roma.”

In the past, Toronto audience members voted by depositing their ticket stubs in a box at the theater, or by using the TIFF app — festival organizers took into account the size of the theaters in which each film screened — with the films that received votes from the largest percentage of their audience winning the prizes…………………”

Henry Cavill Out As Superman!

“It’s not Kryptonite that will end Henry Cavill’s run as Warner Bros.’ grimdark Superman; it’s a studio pivot.

Cavill is reportedly finished as the Man of Steel, with unnamed studio insiders telling The Hollywood Reporter that he won’t be donning the signature DC Comics superhero’s cape and tights again. It’s said to be part of a larger move aimed at fixing WB’s flagging DC Extended Universe (DCEU).

The rumored exit apparently started with a much smaller disagreement: The studio wanted Cavill for a cameo in the upcoming Shazam!, out April 5, 2019. But talks between WB and the actor’s reps didn’t go anywhere.

Beyond that, the studio also understands that bigger changes are needed. To date, the only universally successful DC-pegged release was 2017’s Wonder Woman, which landed both with critics and at the box office.

As one insider said, “There’s a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work.” (LOL at that understatement.) So now, WB is trying to hit “reset” (per another source) on the whole endeavor.

That reset reportedly includes a shift in focus from Superman to Supergirl. That movie would serve as an origin story, starring a teenage hero………………….”
