Quentin Tarantino looking for new home for latest movie
Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino is looking for a new studio for his latest film.
After a long career with The Weinstein Company, Quentin Tarantino is looking to make his ninth feature, known only as #9, elsewhere.
Recently accused of multiple counts of sexual harassment, exposed in an explosive New York Times article, Weinstein was fired from his own company, leading to a number of stars refusing to work with the movie mogul.
Following the fallout, Tarantino has been forced to look further afield.
A difficult decision considering the frequency of their collaborations and the amount of them TWC – or former company Miramax – are responsible for, including Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Death Proof, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds and The Hateful 8.
#9 has received a lot of attention for allegedly focusing on Charles Manson and his murderous activities in LA during the late 60s/early 70s.
Deadline.com reports that although the script focuses on Manson, it would be “akin to calling Inglourious Basterds a movie about Adolf Hitler, when the Nazi leader was only in a scene or two.”
It has also been reported that Tarantino is in talks with Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L Jackson along with Margot Robbie having been asked to play Manson victim Sharon Tate.
Tarantino is reportedly in talks with all major studios except for Disney, who are not in the market for an R-rated feature.
Today, Harvey Weinstein's request to gain access to his personnel file at The Weinstein Company was rejected by Delaware Chancery Court Judge Joseph Slights, according to Bloomberg.
Weinstein sued The Weinstein Company last week to gain information to defend himself.
