I know it’s too soon but Martin Scorcese is said to direct this movie with Billy Ray (The Hunger Games, Captain Phillips) in charge of the screenplay. Frank Sinatra is typical Oscar bait… I would love to know who is going to play Sinatra… What do you guys think?
Well, it probably going to be DiCaprio (a choice that I would hate for the role) but maybe Chris Pine?
Well considering that Andrew Garfield is going to be his new male lead, I think that Scorcese will choose another actor.
According to his editor this isn’t even their next project.
It’s not. It’s Silence with Andrew Garfield. But I think this has been confirmed as Silence’s follow up.
Well, John Travolta’s time has passed for the Lead I’d guess, who apparently was his original choice way back. But there are many skinny actors who can play chauvinist and who can also sing. Of course there’s always lip syncing.
Rumour has it that Scorsese wants De Niro and Pacino to play older versions of Sinatra and Martin, with Leo as “young” Sinatra. But this is just rumour. I imagine he’ll have very little trouble getting this film made….
