If finalised, the 49-year-old actor, who has acted in films such as "Scream 2", "Hitman" and "I Am Number Four", will join Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Tarantino's ninth film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Three Tarantino regulars - Kurt Russell ("The Hateful Eight"), Tim Roth ("Reservoir Dogs"), and Michael Madsen ("Kill Bill") will be seen in small/cameo-style roles.
DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton, an ageing, out-of-work actor in the film, with Pitt as his longtime stunt double named Cliff Booth.
The two characters happen to be Tate's neighbours. Margot Robbie, meanwhile, is being eyed to play the slain actor.
