Margot Robbie is in talks to play the Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Margot Robbie arrives at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain, February 18, 2018.

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.

"Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognise anymore".

The film will tell the story of the murder of Tate and several others in a killing spree instigated by Charles Manson. Robbie has been the rumored pick for months, and now Deadline reports the actress has been offered the role and is entering final negotiations to seal the deal. The two happen to live next door to Sharon Tate, and their Hollywood struggle will somehow get caught up in the Manson murders.

Robbie was on the initial shortlist of cast members Tarantino had reportedly approached for the film, including Pitt and DiCaprio (the only official names announced), Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Cruise, and Jennifer Lawrence. The movie is set to be released on August 9, 2019.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be Tarantino's first movie for Sony Pictures since the end of his relationship with The Weinstein Company in 2017.
