Quentin Tarantino gets $18 million tax credit for upcoming film about Manson Family murders

UPI News Service, 11/23/2017 

The California Film Commission announced Monday that Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film about the Manson Family murders will receive a tax credit of more than $18 million -- the largest of any tax credit awarded this year.

The announcement comes one day after Charles Manson, the ringleader of the cult that murdered five people in 1969 on which Tarantino's film is based, died of natural causes.

Tarantino's film, which is being referred to as "Untitled #9," for his ninth film, was one of two big budget movies to get a tax credit by the state this year.

According to Variety, films with budgets of more than $75 million had a difficult time getting tax credits.

But as productions have been increasingly moving out of state and having a negative impact on local production jobs, California officials have been making an effort to retain those productions, such as the tax credits handed out Monday.

"Despite aggressive incentives worldwide, California is once again competing for big projects because we're able to provide the best overall value," California Film Commission executive director Amy Lemisch said.

"Films today can be shot just about anywhere, so it's great to see so much production returning to the Golden State."

The other big budget film to get a big tax credit was an upcoming adaptation of Jack London's "Call of the Wild," to be directed by Chris Sanders, which was given a tax credit of $17 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
