Sharon Tate’s Awful Murder Will Be Told in Tarantino’s New Film

Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. The film seems to explicit Tarantino’s cinematic obsessions. Set in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a TV actor who yearns for big movie roles, and Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth, Dalton’s stunt double.

While Dalton and Booth are fictional characters, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set in a very real and dark moment in history. Charles Manson and his followers cast a shadow over Los Angeles in August 1969 after the brutal murders of seven individuals including the actress Sharon Tate, wife of Roman Polanski, portrayed by Margot Robbie.

Here are the actors who will play the main characters:

Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate
Austin Butler as Charles “Tex” Watson, member of the Manson Family
Damon Harriman as Charles Manson
Rafał Zawierucha as Roman Polanski
Costa Ronin as Wojciech Frykowski
Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen
Emile Hirsch as Jay Sebring
Samantha Robinson as Abigail Folger
Mike Moh as Bruce Lee
Luke Perry as Wayne Maunder
