Quentin Tarantino's next film officially has a release date as he prepares to shoot his first film since severing ties with the Weinstein Company.

IndieWire reports the untitled film will open on August 9, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Sharon Tate murders.

The film will be set in 1969 Los Angeles and follow a male television actor trying to make it in Hollywood alongside his stunt double buddy.

It's not yet known how but the murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and cult of Charles Manson will somehow feature in the film.

Sony Pictures will produce the film after Tarantino announced in November he was cutting ties with his former studio, The Weinstein Company, following a sexual harassment scandal.

Harry Potter producer David Heyman will instead produce the film. This will be the first film Tarantino produces without The Weinstein Company.     

There is not yet a confirmed cast, but there are rumours Tarantino is considering Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.
