Well, we've been hearing this rumor for months, but now it's been made official: according to Deadline, Margot Robbie (fresh off her Oscar-nominated turn in I, Tonya) has now entered negotiations to play Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
For those who haven't been paying attention: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set during "the height of hippy Hollywood", and will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as an actor/stunt-double duo trying to make the treacherous leap from TV gigs to feature film work. Oh, and also, they live next door to actress Sharon Tate, whose murder at the hands of the Manson Family would become one of the most infamous and horrific crimes in Hollywood history. How this all ties together is still something of a mystery.
Nothing further to report at this time, but we're keeping our ear to the ground for updates. Stay tuned as more on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood becomes available.
