Thanksgiving and Christmas came a little early today for Quentin Tarantino and Sony Pictures. Picked up by the studio last week, as my colleague Mike Fleming Jr exclusively reported, the directors next feature is among the 11 films awarded nearly $62.8 million in California tax credits.
The Chris Sanders helmed adaptation of Jack Londons Call of the Wild, Destroyer, starring Nicole Kidman and directed by the Karyn Kusama, and an untitled Dan Gilroy project starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo were also recipients of the latest round of the hefty incentives made public Monday. The announcement this morning by the California Film Commission comes after that latest round of feature applications for some of the Golden States annual $330 million in incentives wrapped up on October 20.
Going with the working title of Untitled #9 and set to receive more than $18 million in tax credits, the ninth film by Tarantino is set in late 1960s L.A. and hence is a perfect fit for the revamped incentives and their goal of attracting big budget flicks back to the home of Hollywood. Touching on the violence and bloodshed unleashed by the now dead Charles Manson, Tarantino is said to want Margot Robbie to play Sharon Tate in the around $100 million budgeted movie. Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are in the mix to portray the two main lead male roles for the 2019 R-rated release.

Why, this is CORPORATE WELFARE!!! The poorest wretches, especially women and minorities and their children will haver to PAY while Tarentino and his fat-cat friends hoard all that ill-gotten lucre!

Welfare for the Rich! Thanks EdnaMode.
Tarentino films? I’ll pass. Although I did like Inglorious Bastards only because the guy playing the SS bada$$ was cool. His stuff is too gory.
The Karyn Kusama? She she graduate from The Ohio State?
That same guy was in Django Unchained, and he was equally cool in that role.
Gory? Yes they both are very much gory.
Yeah, I didn’t know either until this article came out. Hope it’s good.
They LOVE them,. Dems love them, as well, as a percentage get cycled back into Dem Campaigns
I checked Wikipedia, and it said she went to NYU.
He was also in the film about watering elephants or something; he was the circus owner. Good film.
