There is an incredible link between Tarantino's upcoming movie and Mindhunter Season 2

As if we needed another reason to check them both out.

One of the biggest movies and one of the biggest TV series of 2019 have found themselves sharing a very unique common denominator.


In case you need a catch, Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set against the backdrop of the infamous Manson Family murders of 1969, and features, among others, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Burt Reynolds, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Margot Robbie, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Scoot McNairy, James Marsden, and Clifton Collins Jr.

Meanwhile, the second season of Mindhunter will be directed by David Fincher (Se7en, Gone Girl), Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and Carl Franklin (House of Cards, Homeland), and will focus on the Atlanta child murders, which took place between 1979 and 1981, which resulted in the deaths of 28 children, teenagers, and adults, all of whom were African-American.

For that time period, it will also feature the Son of Sam and the BTK Killer, as well as a small appearance by Charles Manson, who at that time was in prison.

However, and this is where it gets interesting, it turns out that the same actor will be playing Charles Manson in both projects.



Collider are reporting that Damon Herriman has already filmed his scenes for Mindhunter in July, but has yet to film them for Tarantino's project, who we reported this week had been cast in the role in the epic thriller.

Herriman will be playing Charles Manson in the two projects with a ten-year gap in the time periods between them, so it will be very interesting to see how the actor tackles the same character under these two very different directors.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is released in Ireland on 26 July 2019, while Mindhunter Season 2 has no set release date yet, but considering the show was still in production in July, early 2019 is a decent guess at the time of arrival.
