Martin Scorsese has long been linked to a Frank Sinatra biopic, and this is a project I've been keenly interested in because of the amazing, colorful life that Sinatra lived plus the skill set of Scorsese as a story teller seem to add up to a fantastic biopic. The role of Sinatra in a Scorsese directed movie would obviously be very sought after and rumors have linked every one from his recent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio (who would skew too young for a large chunk of the film) to Goodfellas alumni Ray Liotta, who played Old Blue Eyes in an HBO biopic a few years back with names like George Clooney and even Johnny Depp also mentioned. Part of the issue with casting this part is deciding, as a story teller, who you want to tell this tale. Sinatra's story spans several decades making it extremely difficult to cast one actor in the role. His career began in 1935 and he was still a larger-than-life performer when he died in 1998. Scorsese hasn't said what his plan is for the movie: if it will be one actor, aided by make up and special effects, multiple actors, two actors, one old, one young, or if the film won't be about his entire life, and rather just a focused chapter and will only require one actor. But his recent comments to Indian paper The Hindu on the casting for the movie have left me scratching my head: his first choice for the role is seventy year old Al Pacino.
