Scorsese to make Frank Sinatra film ?
With the 10 year anniversary of Frank Sinatra's death this week, a film based on his life could be on the cards, and Martin Scorsese could be the man to direct it. One of the stumbling blocks to the film being made though, is the differing attitudes of Sinatra's children. Both as to the form it should take, and what it should include.
IMDB reports that Tina Sinatra had been in discussions with Martin Scorsese, the aim being to make a film of her father's life. Tina Sinatra told the Los Angeles Times that for her, Scorsese was the only man for the job.
Her siblings though have other ideas. Nancy Sinatra wants a TV documentary series, and is worried that any film would dwell on the more negative aspects of his life. Frank Sinatra Jr meanwhile claims to have been kept entirely out of the loop.
It certainly isn't the best timing for the family dispute. Would you be interested in a Scorsese film on Frank Sinatra? Would you rather it was warts and all, or that it focused mainly on the story of his career?
