LOS ANGELES: Quentin Tarantino’s much awaited movie on Manson murders has finally got its release date.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the ‘Pulp Fiction’ director’s latest will hit theaters on August 9, 2019.

That date also marks the 50th anniversary of the murders of Sharon Tate and her friends by the followers of Manson. Manson was the cult leader who instructed the killings and died on November 17 while serving a life sentence.

Sony is distributing Tarantino’s next picture. The studio beat out several bidders, including Warner Bros. and Paramount, for rights to the film.

Though the plot of the story is still under wraps, but is believed to set in 1969 and is believed to involve Charles Manson and the Manson family murders.

The director has told media outlets that it’s not a biopic, but is an ensemble film set during the tumultuous time period.

The movie will be the first Tarantino film whose release does not involve Harvey Weinstein, the executive disgraced by allegations of rape and sexual misconduct.
