The True Story:
Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra is THE quintessential Hollywood icon, complete with incredible singing voice, acting talent and um… ties to the mob.
As a founding member of the Rat Pack, he lived a glitzy, glamorous life in the 50s and 60s, partying with celebrities and politicians.
He became one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, had a voice recognisable the world over and enjoyed an extensive film career. In short, he was an absolute legend.
The Movie Version:
A sketchy one this as it has been a long-mooted passion project of Martin Scorsese for many, many years.
writer Billy Ray was hired to write the script, and many names have been suggested to take on the role – most recently, and easily to see why, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Scorsese seems keen to push the project forward but it has stalled many times before, and the big-eyebrowed one himself always seems to have other films on his plate, so who knows when this will eventually become a reailty.
Why We're Excited:
It’s Martin Scorsese’s take on one of the biggest classical Hollywood legends of all time.
Everyone should be willing this to happen with every fibre of their being.
