Scorsese to Direct Sinatra Biopic

The wait is over: Martin Scorsese will direct a film about famed crooner Frank Sinatra’s life. The director has finally secured the Sinatra family’s blessing—no easy task—and Sinatra’s youngest daughter, Tina, will be an executive producer on the project. The film’s long been rumored to be attached to Scorsese, whom Tina told has journalists she would trust with her father’s story because the director is also Italian-American. Phil Alden Robinson, who wrote and directed Field of Dreams, has signed on to write the screenplay.
