Quentin Tarantino is looking for a new home for his upcoming movie in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Deadline reports the director is shopping around his script for the film involving the Charles Manson murders to every studio this week (except for Disney, obvi). The pic is being called #9 for now, as it's Tarantino's ninth directing project.

While this movie has been highly thought of as a "Charles Manson movie" – the outlet reports that even though the murders are addressed, it is not totally about that.

It's been reported in the past that Margot Robbie will play the role of Sharon Tate… and now we're hearing Tarantino wrote parts for Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson, who've all starred in his movies before.

There have been no confirmations yet.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more casting news!

After starring in The Night We Never Met for Miramax, Sciorra says she was always at events and screenings for the studio. Then one dinner changed everything:

Quentin Tarantino hasn't had to think about what studio he's going to make his movies at for over two decades.

But now that longtime collaborator Harvey Weinstein's career has gone down in flames, the Django Unchained director and his new Manson family murders script are up in the air.
