Martin Scorsese to Direct "Sinatra"

Posted: May 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Martin Scorsese to Direct "Sinatra"Submit Comment
Universal Pictures has announced that it has acquired the feature film project "Sinatra" from Mandalay Pictures for Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese (The Departed) to direct.

Oscar-nominated screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams) is writing the screenplay for "Sinatra" based on the life of the iconic entertainer. Universal Pictures and Mandalay Pictures have been developing the project, after securing the Frank Sinatra life rights and music rights from Frank Sinatra Enterprises - a joint venture of the Sinatra Estate and Warner Music Group.

"We have dreamt of making a movie about Frank Sinatra, and Marty Scorsese is undeniably the perfect vision keeper for this project," said Chairman of Mandalay Entertainment Group, Peter Guber.

Frank Sinatra was born in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1915. Over the course of his career, he performed on more than 1,400 musical recordings, was awarded 31 gold records, received 10 Grammy Awards in addition to three special honors bestowed upon him by the Recording Industry Association of America. He appeared in 58 films winning three Oscars and two Golden Globe awards, in addition to a lifelong legacy of humanitarian work.
