First off let me note that neither the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER nor VARIETY have reported on this film yet. Considering they usually do a story on any film that even MIGHT get made one might assume that the movie THE MANSON GIRLS is more tenuous that one might think. And you would be correct.
Brad Wyman the producer is legendary in Hollywood for having lost his mind one year in Cannes, stripping naked and running up and down the Croisette. Matthew Bright the director, aside from directing the unmistakenly bad film FREEWAY directed a film called TIPTOES in which Gary Oldman played a dwarf. Yes you heard me. You could ask Matthew about the film but he got fired off of it pretty fast. He had nothing to do with the post production of the film at all. And then there is the alleged star Lindsay Lohan. Her last 5 films have been bombs. She has been in and out of rehab. Wyman said in his interview that they got insurance for her. But I don't believe they have insurance or even money to make the film. And thanks to her tabloid exploits I don't believe anyone will finance it- it would be like pissing money down the drain. Top that off with the screenplay I read- written not even on a screenwriting program but simply on Microsoft Word, it is stupid and grossly inaccurate and badly written. Helter Skelter the remake was better than what I read and THAT SUCKED.
But I got better reasons why I predict this never happens. The law of the land. You see, the real Nancy Pitman must now be aware of the possible existence of this film. She has not been looking for attention by lying out her ass like Gypsy. She has been quietly doing her planting and nursery work in Oregon. Now, the filmmakers have the right to depict her based on the public record, sure. But that means the court trials. And there is so much bullshit in the screenplay that any Errors and Omissions insurance company will refuse to insure it.
If Nancy Pitman is out there, get a lawyer honey. You can stop this film without trying and you really should. Protect whatever good name you earned over the last 30 years.

EXT. TERRY MELCHER’S CIELO DRIVE HOUSE – DAY
A day time get together with about fifteen upscale Rock & Roll CELEBRITIES.
Mingling among the professionals are various Manson Girls, including Brenda, Squeaky and Sadie, really pouring it on and acting as flirty and vivacious as possible.
ANOTHER ANGLE - Dennis is introducing Charlie to various PARTY GOERS, one of whom is an enormous FAT WOMAN.
Hey, Cass... I want you to meet this guy I’m getting
ready to record… This is Charlie Manson... Charlie,
this is Cass Elliot, from the Mamas and the Papas…
Hello, Charlie… I’ve heard a lot about you.
Charlie proceeds to kiss ass with the rock stars to the point of nausea.
Hey, Mama Cass... I’ve been digging your records
for a long time now.
And this is Frank Zappa. Frank, this is Charlie
Your music is so groovy. Definitely groovy.
Frank takes an instant dislike to Charlie. Something about his heavy handed charm offensive just rubs him the wrong way.
Well, Charlie… We try to be groovy in
everything we do… Grooviness is definitely
one of the qualities we strive for…
Charlie catches the disrespect immediately. He gives Frank a cold look. Frank sees it
and laughs contemptuously. Dennis sees it too and takes Charlie by the arm.
Hey, Charlie… C’mere, there’s someone else
I want you to meet…
Charlie looks back coldly at Frank Zappa for a moment as Dennis leads him away to a MAN standing on the other side of the room with a beautiful blonde WOMAN.
Charlie, this is my producer and our host, Terry
Melcher and his girlfriend, Candice Bergen…
Charlie looks Candice Bergen like she’s a particularly choice piece of meat.
I really like your movies, lady.
Why, thank you, Charlie. How nice of you to
ON BRENDA, SQUEAKY & SADIE – dancing with a funny little guy with a mustache. This is SONNY BONO (32).
So, Sonny... Where’s
She’s visiting her mom back east.
She’s really hot.
Yes, she’s definitely that.
Is she into girls?
You’d really have to ask her that yourself...
So, who’s your friend?
Sonny gestures toward Charlie who’s talking with Terry Melcher and Candice Bergen.
Oh, that’s Charlie... The most amazing man in
the world. And the next Bob Dylan... No, he’s
better than Bob Dylan.
Really... He’s like your guru or something?
Something like that.
Sadie leans in close to Sonny and puts her hand on his leg.
Wanna go inside?
Come on, you’ll have fun.
Sonny smiles – he’s going for it.
ON CHARLIE – talking with Terry and Candice, while Sonny can be seen being pulled into the house by Brenda, Sadie and Squeaky.
So, Charlie... Dennis tells me you’re into some
really happening sounds.
Candice sees Sonny go into the house with the girls and elbows Terry to get his attention.
Well, I’m just doing what comes honestly..
I like that. I do…
I was hoping you’d drop by and listen to what
Charlie’s doing when he gets a little more material
Say, don’t you have a tour coming up?
Yeah, but I’m letting Charlie use the studio…
Charlie’ll call and tell you when he’s ready to
show you something, won’t you, Charlie?
Definitely, man… Definitely…
ON CHARLIE – having big dreams of stardom.
BRENDA NARRATING O.S.
Terry was this big time music producer whose
mom was that actress Doris Day… He was also
the guy who’d discovered Paul Revere and the
Raiders and he was also the producer for the
Byrds... And now he was going to be working
INT. TERRY & CANDICE’S BEDROOM – SAME MOMENT
Sonny Bono, sweating profusely and completely ripped, is holding Sadie up against the wall like Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, fucking her like some kind of animal, while Brenda and Squeaky in various stages of undress lay on the bed watching with stunned expressions..
Who would have thought Sonny Bono was such
It’s always the quiet ones.
ON SADIE – being driven to new highs by Sonny Bono.
