Margot Robbie has cemented herself as a Hollywood force to be reckoned with, ever since she starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
She’s wowed in Focus and taken charge of the limelight in I, Tonya, and now she’s about to tackle a controversial role in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
According to Deadline, Margot will be playing Sharon Tate in the film, which will recreate the 1969 murder of Tate, who was the wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski, by followers of Charles Manson.
The film will follow what happened, when the Manson commune members broke into the couple’s house and killed Tate when she was pregnant, along with four other visitors.
The film is set to be released on August 9, 2019, on the 50th anniversary of the tragic murders.
Leonardo DiCaprio will also be starring in the movie as Tate’s neighbour and former Western star Rick Dalton. Brad Pitt will be Dalton’s stunt double Cliff Booth.
It will also star the likes of Burt Reynolds, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen.
