Tarantino’s Manson Script Under Tight Lockdown

Quentin Tarantino is reportedly making studio executives go through a complicated process to bid for his new film about Charles Manson.

The Wrap reports that William Morris Endeavor are shopping around his upcoming ninth feature film which will deal with the Manson murders – the tragedy and cultural phenomenon of his cult and the famous victims of their violence.

The likes of Warner Bros. Pictures, Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures are all interested, but in order to bid the studio execs have to go to WME’s Beverly Hills offices to see the script in person. The agents then present deal points to allow the studios to bid for the theatrical rights. No streaming giants are said to be under consideration, only full theatrical distributors.

A second round of discussions will be set where the studios can pitch Tarantino directly as well. Secrecy is high on this likely due to the early script for his previous film “The Hateful Eight” leaking online which upset the director to the point he almost abandoned the project.
