No, sadly we're not talking about Paul Newman (RIP), but rather the original Ol' Blue Eyes himself--Frank Sinatra.
The studios have
the project marks the first big screen pic to be made about the singer/actor, whose life provided endless fodder for gossip columnists due to his tumultuous affairs, infamous friendships with the likes of President Kennedy and his most-likely Mafia ties. The screenplay has been described as an unconventional biopic that will touch on all phases of Sinatra’s life.
Personally, I'd rather see the potential Steve McQueen biopic first, but Sinatra does have some juicy stuff for a cool flick--booze, singing, sexin', and mobsters, anyone? And, Leo might be the man for the job. Anyone else you'd like to see Rat Pack it up with Scorsese?
