Rumour Mill: Scorsese making a Sinatra biopic?

He may bring Ol’ Blue Eyes to the screen…

For years it was rumoured that Martin Scorsese would be bringing his peerless filmmaking talents to the life story of rat-packer Dean Martin. But while those never came to fruition, it looks like he might just have switched focus to the leader of the pack – Frank Sinatra.

According to Tina Sinatra, the crooner/actor/lounge lizard’s youngest daughter, Scorsese will not make the man out to be a Mafia stooge, a story that dogged him for years – and continued after his death.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the project to arrive in cinemas just yet, though: Scorsese has a full development plate and is only rumoured to be interested in the Sinatra story. There’s no ink on any deals yet.
