New details have emerged on Quentin Tarantino's ninth movie, which he is apparently eyeing both Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to star in.

The Django Unchained filmmaker is currently looking for a new studio to make his next project with after quitting the Weinstein Company amid the sexual abuse controversy caused by Harvey Weinstein.

Tarantino has reportedly finished the script for the film, which was earlier reportedly set to centre on the notorious Charles Manson murders.

However, Deadline reports that while the film will involve Manson, that will be a small part of the story, in a similar was as Adolf Hitler the person was a small part of World War II-set Inglourious Basterds.

The new film, currently being referred to as #9, is said to be a late '60s or early '70s Los Angeles drama which could be compared to Pulp Fiction more than any other previous Tarantino film.

Roles are reported to have been written specifically for Samuel L Jackson, Pitt and DiCaprio, all of whom have worked with Tarantino before, while Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence are also rumoured to be wanted for the film.

Tarantino is said to be seeking around US$100 million for the movie and is offering it to every major studio with the exception of Disney.
