Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio Teaming on Frank Sinatra Biopic

Just a few months after the release of their latest film, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are looking to re-team again — this time on a biopic about the life of musician and actor Frank Sinatra.

This would mark DiCaprio and Scorsese’s seventh movie together, following Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Killers of the Flower Moon. (Or their eighth if you also count the short film “The Audition.”)

According to Variety, Scorsese intends to make this Sinatra movie after his next project, which is a film about the life of Jesus Christ. DiCaprio would play Sinatra while Jennifer Lawrence would play Sinatra’s second wife, actress Ava Gardner.

They do note, however, “the Sinatra project could also hit some snags: The legendary crooner’s daughter Tina Sinatra controls her father’s estate and hasn’t yet given her blessing to the film.” They also say Sony is “the frontrunner” to distribute the project.
