Margot Robbie Shares First Look As Sharon Tate In New Tarantino Film

Margot Robbie Spot-On As Sharon Tate In First Look At Quentin Tarantino Movie

Within hours, the image garnered more than 1.3 million likes. Tarantino has previously stated that the Manson murders aren't the main focus of the film, claiming: "It's not Charles Manson, it's 1969".

Hot on the heels of initial photos of Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt rocking some serious late-'60s threads, as well as reports that Tate's late sister now approves of Tarantino's in-production project, we now have our maiden glimpse of Robbie in character as Tate, the actress (and wife of director Roman Polanski) who was one of five people murdered on August 9, 1969 by members of the Manson Family.

In a statement the Kill Bill filmmaker said: "I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff".

DiCaprio also posted a "first look" image of himself and Pitt in character back in June.

The Australian actress is due to play the ill-fated star who was murdered by the Manson family while pregnant with husband Roman Polanski's baby back in the 70s.

Al Pacino, Damien Lewis, James Marsden and Dakota Fanning have also been added to the billing.

Sony Pictures offered details on the project in a February news release.

Robbie took to Instagram on Monday to share the first snap of herself in character as Sharon Tate, the silver screen star who dazzled Hollywood in the 1960s, starring on series including The Beverly Hillbillies, Mister Ed, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and in films like Eye of the Devil, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Valley of the Dolls, and The Wrecking Crew. The former is a washed-up Western TV star struggling to make it in a Hollywood he doesn't recognize anymore, while the other is his long-time stunt double who has fallen on hard times, too. Hilary Duff will portray the actress in the psychological horror film, "The Haunting of Sharon Tate", which Debra Tate slammed as "classless" and "exploitative".
