Post DiCaprio to play Frank Sinatra, Scorsese directing
http://showbiz411.blogs.thr.com/2010/02 ... er-island/

Quote:
Leonardo DiCaprio is still to set to play Frank Sinatra for Martin Scorsese. But he’s probably not going to sing.
“With those records?” Scorsese asked me, his voice rising, at the premiere last night for his new DiCaprio collaboration, “Shutter Island.” “Frank will do the singing. But we’re waiting for a finished script.”

So while he’s waiting, Scorsese’s next film will likely take a break from DiCaprio. “The Invention of Huge Cabret” is lighter fare for Scorsese, about a 12-year-old boy who lives in Paris and meets famous French silent film director and magician George Méliès.


How many movies together is this now? DiCaprio's next film is still likely the Viking film directed by Mel Gibson.

That would be just AWESOME! I really hope it will happen at some point.

DiCaprio as Sinatra? I don't really see it, but maybe he can pull it off.

Nevertheless, I think this has some obvious commercial potential.

Is Leo going to sing? He doesn't have Frank's deep voice...

Should be good. DiCaprio is an amazing actor and Scorsese seems the ideal candidate to dramatize Sinatra's life.

Maybe DeNiro can be Dean Martin

Heh. I didn't read it expecting the usual one sentence wrap up about the project and then the obligatory summarized filmography of everyone involved. :pinch:

I'm not a fan of this idea. Other actors have sang in their roles. I don't see why they can't have a singer involved with this. Joaquin Phoenix sang for Walk the Line.

There have been roles where the actors don't sing, so who knows. But if you're going to play a boxer (Ali, Million Dollar Baby, Rocky), learn how to box, etc.

It works both ways. Kurt Russell was awesome as Elvis and didn't sing. I think Sinatra is one of the easiest song style to learn so who knows.

I'm not fussed if he doesnt sing - but I dont think he is right for the role. Physically, Ray Liotta looks more like Sinatra and would be a better fit (plus he is a Scorsese alumni).

I'd love if Scorsese did this next instead of the kids film but what can you do

Liotta already played Sinatra - plus he's too old now.

I actually think Bradley Cooper with black hair wouldn't be too bad. I think DiCaprio could pull it off, he would just have to loose weight and black hair. I think he is a great actor and the accent and style is the most of the work, something Leo is capable of

Looks like this could be up and running again if Nancy gives her blessing :

Maybe for Sammy Davis Jr seeing that they aren't going for lookalikes.

Scorsese and Leo doing another project together just doesn't excite me anymore. He doesn't look like Frank Sinatra at all. Get Bale to do it. I don't think he and Marty have ever worked together?

Initial estimated runtime is 347 minutes.

LOL at runtime and Eddie Murphy jokes.

Young Leo was way too pretty to play the goofy, borderline ugly Sinatra. Sorry but its true, Frank was dolled up beyond belief in his prime.
