Scorsese Talks Sinatra & Casting for Invention

Lonely Reviewer contributor Ben has been waiting as long as he’s heard about it for Martin Scorsese’s Sinatra biopic.The Oscar winning director said recently that the project is proving to be a difficult challenge due to the sheer size of Sinatra’s life.

He told Shortlist.com that “It’s very hard because here is a man who changed the entire image of the Italian-American. And that’s just one thing. Along with his political work, civil rights, the Mob.”

The film apparently will be much like “The Aviator,” by only focusing at certain points in his life.

He tells the site that you could “have three or four different Sinatras. Younger. Older. Middle-aged. Very old. You cut back and forth in time – and you do it through the music. See what I’m saying? So that’s what we’re trying for.”

I’m confident if anyone can build an amazing film out of an amazing life, its Martin Scorsese.

In other Scorsese related news, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley have been cast in his next film, an adapation of the children’s book ‘Invention of Hugo Cabret.’
