Movie buffs, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
According to Variety, Martin Scorsese has been tapped to produce and direct Sinatra, a biopic based on the legendary entertainer from New Jersey. Although there is no actor set to play the leader of the infamous Rat Pack yet, it seems Leonardo DiCaprio would be the obvious choice, as he has become the Guru to Scorsese’s Premier over the past decade or so. With the film still in pre-pre-production, no release date has been set.
With all the baggage Sinatra carried, including ties to Marilyn Monroe, The Kennedy’s and the Giacanna mafia family, Scorsese should be able to turn this film into a dramatic masterpiece worthy of Frankie’s legendary name.
