Quentin Tarantino to star in Roger Corman biopic

London: Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino is reportedly set to star in Roger Corman biopic `The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes`.

The `Django Unchained` filmmaker is set to play the B movie icon in the upcoming Joe Dante project, reported Daily Telegraph.

The `Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes` chronicles the making of Corman`s controversial drug drama `The Trip`, which was released in the 1960s with Jack Nicholson in the lead role.

"It`s the story of how I made `The Trip` in the 1960s about LSD. It starred Jack Nicholson in one of his first roles and I took LSD so I knew what it was all about. It was very controversial but it was the only American picture invited to the Cannes Film Festival that year," said Corman of the project.

Colin Firth was originally linked with the role of Corman in
`The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes`, which is yet to be assigned a release date.
