DiCaprio Clooney Depp fight for Sinatra role August 19, 2009 Who will play Sinatra – Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney and Johnny Depp? Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney and Johnny Depp are rumoured for the upcoming Martin Scorsese film “Sinatra”. The makers of the high-profile biopic are struggling to agree on which star will play the legendary Rat Pack crooner Frank Sinatra. Director Scorsese reportedly wants his Departed star DiCaprio in the lead role, while executive producer Tina Sinatra is keen for George Clooney to portray her father. Studio Universal, meanwhile, is eager to cast Johnny Depp in the coveted part. “Marty wants it to be hard-hitting and showcase the violent, sexually charged, hard-drinking Frank, but Tina wants to show the softer side of her dad and let the focus be on the music,” a source said. Scorsese is expected to turn his attention to the Sinatra film after the release of Shutter Island.
