Ryan Kwanten might play Charles Manson in ‘The Family’

HollywoodNews.com: Just as the curtain is about to fall on torture horror films with “Saw 3D,” news arrives that a Charles Manson flick is in the works and “True Blood” star Ryan Kwanten is being rumored for the lead.

Scott Kosar, the screenwriter of such horror films as “The Crazies,” will direct a film about the cult that became the Manson Family. He revealed such details to Shock Til You Drop.

Kosar describes the film, which is neither biopic nor Manson murder revue as “a movie about a surrogate family of wayward teenagers who, through extraordinary circumstances, came together and were transformed into the most notorious American family of the 20th century.”

The film, which will follow the cult members and their victims, plans to include a sequence on the Sharon Tate murder.

“The Family” will shoot next year.
