Charles Manson's death last year has been inspiring a few movies surrounding the cult leader.
This time, the story won't focus on Manson, but on the three young women who were sentenced to death following the Manson family's murder of actress Sharon Tate.
“When the death penalty was lifted, their sentence became life imprisonment.,” explains the Hollywood Reporter. “One young graduate student, Karlene Faith, was sent in to teach them, and through her the film will follow their transformations as they face the reality of their horrific crimes.”
Charlie Says is based on two books: 2001's The Long Prison Journey Of Leslie Van Houten, written by Faith, and 1971's The Family, written by Ed Sanders.
The cast includes Suki Waterhouse, Game Of Thrones' Hanna Murray and The Crown's Matt Smith, and will be directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho).
The movie is set to start shooting in Los Angeles in the spring.
Manson, who died back in November, was the leader of the Manson family, a murderous cult connected with the killing of Tate, who was pregnant at the time, and six others in Los Angeles July and August 1969.
