PARK CITY, UTAH (AP) - A new movie directed by Susanna Lo will focus on the female followers of cult leader Charles Manson.

Lo says production on “Manson Girls” will begin this spring. Lo, who wrote the screenplay for the movie, made the announcement at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The cast includes Taryn Manning and Heather Matarazzo.

Manson and three women followers were convicted in Los Angeles in 1971 of murder and conspiracy in the 1969 slayings of seven people, including actress Sharon Tate.


Manson is serving a life sentence in a California prison.
