Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson Biopic Gets Official Release Date--And Twitter Is Torn

Quentin Tarantino, award-winning director of Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained, has set a release date for his new movie, which will significantly involve Charles Manson and his family's murders.

There's something significant about that date, however:

Sharon Tate was 26 years old and 8.5 months pregnant when she and four friends were killed in her home.

Twitter does not like the choice to release Tarantino's film on the anniversary of her death.

Many believe it sends the wrong message.

This led to many fans questioning Tarantino's choice of subject matter.

They say any publicity is good publicity, but that might not always be the case...

One Twitter user defended Tarantino's choice:

People could get behind a movie about the 60s.

The real-life Manson recently died of natural causes while serving a life sentence in prison. Tarantino is reportedly still looking for an actor to portray the cult leader in his film.
