Convicted offender Hirsch (l) and Tarantino with his buddy Weinstein (r)

Quentin Tarantino wrote and is directing a new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is due out August 2019. About the movie, from IMDb:
“A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”
You know who was murdered? Shannon Tate, who was 8 ½ months pregnant at the time of her grisly murder.
Now, 49 years later, Quentin Tarantino feels the need to make yet another movie about these horrific murders.
Here’s a list of some of the better-known actors who have signed on for this movie:

  • Brad Pitt
  • Margot Robbie
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Kurt Russell
  • Al Pacino
  • Luke Perry
  • Burt Reynolds
  • Emile Hirsch

That last name may not be familiar to you. I’ve never heard of him.
Emile Hirsch has a past of assaulting a woman. Here’s what I found out about Mr. Hirsch, from Wikipedia:
“Emile Davenport Hirsch (born March 13, 1985) is an American actor. He starred in Into the Wild (2007) and the A&E network simulcast miniseries Bonnie & Clyde (2013). Other films include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002), The Girl Next Door (2004), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Alpha Dog (2006), Speed Racer (2008), Milk (2008), The Darkest Hour (2011), The Motel Life (2012), Lone Survivor (2013), and Vincent N Roxxy (2016).
On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015 at the Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah. On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.”
Apparently Hirsch was intoxicated at a party and doesn’t remember grabbing Daniele from behind, throwing her to the floor and putting her in a chokehold until she blacked out. It took two men to remove Hirsch from his victim.
Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino knew of Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior. Back in October 2017 he said the following (from USA Today):
“Quentin Tarantino has spoken out on his longtime and close working relationship with producer Harvey Weinstein, acknowledging that he’s ashamed he was aware of some of Weinstein’s abhorrent acts but did not take a stand against them.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.
Tarantino cited several Weinstein episodes involving prominent actresses. 
“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”
So a man (Tarantino) who ignored Weinstein’s behavior has signed on a convicted assault offender (Hirsch) to star in a movie about the murder of a pregnant woman?
Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Excellent article DCG seem to me he said that he know of Harvey’s miss deeds with other actresses so if he knew and didn’t say anything isn’t that obstruction of justice for not reporting it? Just saying if he knew and didn’t then its the same as condoning it. So why isn’t he under investigation?

DCG . . . thank you for being on top of such a ludicrous article such as this. I can think that Tarantino really does not care on iota about women, women being attacked. He is from that old school where women are fair game for anything, and that nothing that can be perpetrated against a woman is out of bounds. Yes, we heard his rhetoric regarding Weinstein, but let’s face it, he has to at least look like he is part of the group trying to clean things up. As far as the list of actors who have signed… Read more »

I absolutely despise Quentin Tarantino and I wouldn’t be seeing any of his movies under ANY circumstances. That is a very sick dude, and just the sight of him also makes me sick!

I saw only a part of “Kill Bill” and I thought it was the most deranged movie I had ever seen. That being said, I gauge Tarantula from what I’ve heard him say, and I maintain the man is psychiatrically deranged and is a menace to society at large. I am saying I wouldn’t tolerate being around him physically. But I think something else is going on here, also. We don’t know the entire truth about Manson and the Tate-LaBianca murders. But from what I have read and gathered, I take it Manson was a mind-controlled subject of some CIA… Read more »


The Manson murders are more than likely a hoax. Lots of information about it out there.
