While most people with an interest in the morbid history of Charles Manson tend to tell the story of Manson and his “children,” the filmmakers behind The Haunting of Sharon Tate have obviously taken a different approach.
Saban Films recently announced that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights from Voltage Pictures to true-crime psychologicalThe Haunting of Sharon Tate, starring Hilary Duff (Younger, The Perfect Man), Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls, Cheaper by the Dozen 2), and Lydia Hearst (Between Worlds, South of Hell). Daniel Farrands ( : The Curse of Michael Myers, The Haunting in Connecticut) wrote, directed and produced the film. Lucas Jarach and Eric Brenner also produced through Jim Jacobsen’s Skyline Entertainment banner, which also fully financed the film.
The film follows actress Sharon Tate (Duff) in the weeks leading up to her and her unborn child’s murder as she is plagued by visions of her impending death.
About the film, Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said:
The Tate Murders remain a horrifying cultural fascination, even nearly 50 years after they occurred. Hilary is mesmerizing as Sharon Tate; this is a brutal and unsettling story.
