Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie is about the Manson Family murders and according to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Leonardo DiCaprio has been signed on to star in it. A plot synopsis that was revealed said the film is apparently set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969 and focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and is looking for a way to get into the film business. The actor’s sidekick, who’s also his stunt double, is looking to do the same thing. The horrific murder of actress Sharon Tate along with four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.
Grateful for all who came out to the @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn Gala & contributed to our efforts to protect the planet. This past year LDF and its partners made a measurable difference. We helped protect more than 1.6 million square kilometers of ocean – an area more than twice the size of Texas – including the creation of the largest marine reserve in the world in Antarctica's Ross Sea. We are also supporting efforts to bring back the jaguar and the Mexican Gray Wolf - now 32 wolf packs have returned to the Pacific Northwest! In Tanzania our partner has restored the wildlife of Mkomazi national park, and in the grasslands of Kenya, where we are helping jump start an important carbon sequestration project. These are just a few of the stories about the impact the generosity of our donors has helped make possible. Click the link in bio to get involved.
