Sharon Tate’s sister, Debra Tate, is calling Quentin Tarantino’s planned Charles Manson murder film a horrible slight at her family and the memory of her actress sister slaughtered by the Manson cultists in Los Angeles in 1969. Debra Tates suggests that hiring her as a paid consultant on the film might counter the slight. The Mason victim money isn’t rolling in like it used to.
Tarantino never speaks about his in-progress movies, though every single person around him does and he doesn’t seem to mind. The leading candidates to portray Sharon Tate are Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie. Heady A-list casting. It is a sweet role. Third trimester pregnant and butchered to death, then hanged for effect. White chicks needs to dig deeper for Oscars in the new quotas era.
Debra Tate put in her unpaid two cents and declared Jennifer Lawrence not pretty enough to play her sister. Sharon Tate wasn’t crazy hot, but she was attractive enough to make Roman Polanski erect for a grown woman. That’s not a nothing.
Being vocal about Lawrence looking like an injured lamb is the kind of brutal honestly Debra Tate could bring to this project. You’d have to at least consider letting her in on casting meetings. Imagine the notes. Also, she owns the image and likeness rights to her deceased sister. You’re going to want to make some action figures.
