Leo To Reportedly Portray Frank Sinatra

Leonardo DiCaprio will reportedly portray Frank Sinatra in a biopic helmed by Martin Scorsese.

Sources tell Variety that the filmmaker is planning to shoot his film about Jesus and the Sinatra biopic back-to-back, with the former scheduled to begin production later this year with filming locations in Israel, Italy and Egypt. DiCaprio is rumored to star alongside Jennifer Lawrence who will play actress and Sinatra’s second wife, Ava Gardner.

Variety adds that Sinatra’s daughter, Tina, is the one in control of the late artist’s estate and is yet to “[give] her blessing to the film.” Apple is also supposedly interested in maintaining its relationship with Scorsese following their work on Killers of the Flower Moon, however Sony is looking to acquire the film.
