The Pulp Fiction director will soon set his sights on the 1960s, including the Tate murders, and he has started to look at a seriously all-star cast to fill out its ranks. In fact, on the heels of recent reports that Tarantino has looked at Margot Robbie for Sharon Tate, it seems like he is also looking at Tom Cruise for an unspecified lead role in The film, as well.
Pretty much every report related to the casting of Quentin Tarantino's Sharon Tate film has suggested a massive, A-list ensemble, and a new report from Deadline claims that we may now be able add another heavy-hitter to the list. Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise has reportedly met with Tarantino to take on a role in the director's ninth project, with the possibility that Cruise would portray one of the two lead characters in the story.
For Tom Cruise, doing a Quentin Tarantino movie would be a far cry from his recent, action-oriented roles like Edge of Tomorrow or The Mummy. Though he has certainly delved into bizarre and adventurous territory before with films like Collateral or Magnolia, the Tarantino style has the potential to allow him to cut loose in a way we've never seen before. It doesn't sound like he's in the running to portray Charles Manson himself (Tarantino has clarified that the new film will not be a Manson movie), so we will just have to wait and see how the role develops.
