Margot Robbie is now officially in negotiations to play murdered Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
Tarantino reportedly met with Robbie to discuss the role last summer (17), but he never officially offered her the job – until now.
According to Deadline sources, the I, Tonya Oscar nominee has the offer and negotiations are underway.
If she signs on, she’ll join a cast that already features her Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.
Tarantino’s new film – his first for Sony Pictures – will take fans back to 1969 Los Angeles, as Charles Manson’s cult members plan a killing spree that was to include the slaughter of Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife Tate.
DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, an aging a western TV star, and Pitt will portray his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.
DiCaprio’s character just happens to live next door to actress Tate.
Tarantino’s film has come under fire from Tate’s sister Debra, who has accused the director of exploiting the tragic star and the 50th anniversary of her death next year (19).
