The as-yet-untitled film has been described as an “ensemble piece” set during the tumultuous time period when Manson and his cult members committed horrific acts of violence.

Meanwhile, Manson died last month at the age of 83. He passed away of natural causes in hospital on November 20.

He was sentenced to death in 1971 for his part in the Manson Family murders, but his conviction was eventually commuted into a life sentence. He remained imprisoned in California until his death.

The Family killed seven victims, including Tate, Rosemary and Leno LaBianca, celebrity hair stylist Jay Sebring, and coffee empire heiress Abigail Folger.
