Sinatra Biopic by Scorsese, Leonardo and Jennifer are reuniting?

The director, Martin Scorsese is bringing back to life his hibernated biopic of Frank Sinatra with his all-time partner, the actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
It was reported by Variety that right after this month’s completion of shooting “Silence” -his adaptation of a book written by Japanese writer Shūsaku Endō, Scorsese will begin working on a project about the life story of Frank Sinatra.

Past Attempts to Film

Before now, Scorsese had first attempted filming the life story of Sinatra in a 2009 production announced with backing from Hollywood studio Universal and rumors that DiCaprio would be cast as lead. Consequently, he told media personnel afterwards in 2010 that he wanted Al Pacino and Robert De Niro to perform as Sinatra and fellow Rat Pack member Dean Martin respectively.
During interviews at various times earlier this year, Scorsese also revealed other movie details including his idea to present several actors playing one principal character. He said, “We can’t go through the greatest hits of Sinatra’s life. We tried this already. Just can’t do it. So the other way to go is to have three or four different Sinatras. Younger. Older. Middle-aged. Very old. You cut back and forth in time – and you do it through the music.”
