Martin Scorsese to direct biopic of Frank Sinatra

Martin Scorsese is set to direct a biopic based on the life of Frank Sinatra.

This will be the first feature-length film about the legendary crooner, who starred in several films himself during his lifetime.

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

Scorsese also directed the highly acclaimed 2008 biopic about The Rolling Stones, “Shine A Light”
