Margot Robbie in talks to play Sharon Tate in Tarantino's 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'

by

The Oscar-nominated actor is entering final negotiations to join Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Tarantino’s 60’s drama ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.

Deadline has confirmed that Margot Robbie has an “official offer" to co-star in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and "negotiations have begun” to play Sharon Tate.

As previously reported back in July, Robbie had been approached to play the late 26 year-old actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was brutally murdered by Charles Manson and his followers on August 8, 1969. If negotiations are successful, the talented 27-year-old will play the famous next door neighbor of the film’s lead characters Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt).

Production is set to begin mid-2018 and Sony Pictures has set the worldwide release one day after the 50th anniversary of the Mason Murders on August 9, 2019.
