It's been five years since blockbuster hit The Wolf of Wall Street, their first film together and the Australian actors big break in Hollywood, and now reports out of the United States suggest Quentin Tarantino is enlisting the pair for his new film.

DiCaprio previously worked with Tarantino in Western slave-themed film "Django Unchained" (2012) which also earned rave reviews and several nominations at various awards shows.

Tarantino told IndieWire.com that the film would be more about the era rather than a biopic of Manson.

Variety said DiCaprio had been in negotiations for months about joining the project.

Margot Robbie, Tom Cruise, Al Pacino and Brad Pitt reportedly are also in consideration for roles in the picture. Robbie was asked by Tarantino to play the role of Sharon Tate, an actress and model who was murdered by the Manson family. If Robbie does get cast in the film, it will be her first time acting opposite DiCaprio since the pair played an unhappily married couple in 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street. However, with the Manson movie expected to shoot later this year, it will mark his first film since his Oscar-winning role. "It's 1969." That description falls in line with Vanity Fair's synopsis of the film based on an anonymous source who claims to have read the script.

DiCaprio will play an aging, out-of-work actor in the film.

The untitled Manson movie already has an August 9, 2019 release date, which would be the 50th anniversary of the murders.
