Considering he's only made eight proper movies in the last two decades, a film from Quentin Tarantino is always a big event in the industry.
Tarantino has reportedly finished the script for the film, which was earlier reportedly set to centre on the notorious Charles Manson murders.
This will be his first movie that he will make without the support of Miramax or The Weinstein Company as Tarantino has chose to look for a new Studio to house his movies in the wake of the numerous scandals against Weinstein. But with the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal forcing Tarantino to look away from The Weinstein Company - his long time collaborator - and find a new home for his latest feature, this will only be amplified. "It wasn't secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things".
The Django Unchained filmmaker is now looking for a new studio to make his next project with after quitting the Weinstein Company amid the sexual abuse controversy caused by Harvey Weinstein.

Saipov was also apparently an Uber driver in Paterson, having passed the company's background check, according to Uber officials. In October 2011, Saipov was cited on suspicion of driving longer than 11 hours in a 14-hour period and was fined $50.
That said, a source told Deadline that although "the script focuses on Charles Manson and the murder spree he orchestrated" that comparison is "akin to calling Inglourious Basterds a movie about Adolf Hitler".
No casting announcements have been made so far.
As we announced previously, Margot Robbie would be considered for the role of the ill-fated Sharon Tate, and Tarantino would have written for Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson - three actors with whom he has already worked.
Amazon and Netflix are reportedly out of the equation, with Tarantino eyeing a theatrical release for #9 - alongside Christopher Nolan, the cinephile is one of the few remaining proponents of film. It's thought a deal will come about within the next fortnight.
