There's been a lot of powerful men out of Hollywood being toppled in the wake of the cascade of sexual misconduct allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. With all this news, a lot in the movie industry has shifted, and a lot of other Hollywood figures effected.

Director Quentin Tarantino is one of them. Tarantino admitted to the New York Times, “I knew enough to do more than I did” vis-á-vis Harvey Weinstein. The director went on to say he was aware of the allegations made by actress Rose McGowan and former girlfriend Mira Sorvino against Weinstein.

Weinstein has also been a long-time collaborator of Tarantino, with Miramax or The Weinstein Company attached to all eight of Tarantino's films. After the initial allegations against Weinstein broke, with Deadline now reporting that the Producer is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly raping actress Paz de la Huerta twice in 2010, Tarantino severed his ties with Weinstein.

This happened just in time for the completion of the script of Tarantino's ninth film, titled (as of now) only “# 9” and is targeting 2019 for its release date. The director is shopping it around to industry heavyweights, who are reading it this week; and, as far as we know, all (besides Disney, because of its likely “R” rating) are interested. Sources say a buyer should be inked within two weeks.

As far as the film itself, we know it will likely tie into the Tate Murders, Charles Manson (at some level), and Pulp Fiction. While no casting commitments have been made yet, Deadline says that Margot Robbie has been approached to play slain actress Sharon Tate, and that Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson have also been approached to star.
