Tate, whose 1969 death at the hands of the Manson family - headed by cult leader Charles Manson - serves as a backdrop for Tarantino's upcoming entertainment industry tale.

In the picture shared on the I, Tonya actress' Instagram page, Robbie is seen wearing a black turtleneck paired with a white mini skirt and white boots. Robbie let the photo of her scarily accurate take on Tate do the talking, keeping the caption simple: "First look".

While the late actress' family members weren't always keen on the film, given the tragic circumstances, her sister Debra Tate recently gave Tarantino their blessing after the director approached her about the project.

One thing we do know is that the fantastic cast will also include Al Pacino, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Emile Hirsch, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Scoot McNairy, Clifton Collins, Luke Perry, and Burt Reynolds.

"I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old", Tarantino said in a statement in February, via The Hollywood Reporter.
