Sinatra biopic

As reported in this space last year, a biopic on the life of Frank Sinatra appears to be on its way to the big screen. And now, the entertainment blog, Showbiz 411, is reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio will indeed play the role of Sinatra.

Martin Scorsese will direct the film thus making this one more pairing of DiCaprio as lead and Scorsese as his director. And, it'll be the second biopic for the two--the duo collaborated on The Aviator, the 2004 film on the life of Howard Hughes.

There's no word on when filming will begin but this project has been discussed for the past 15 years--that's how long Scorsese has been in conversations with the family of Ol' Blue Eyes.
