While director Martin Scorsese has been working a lot with Leonardo DiCaprio as of lately, it seems that another hot actor could be up for the lead in his new biopic. Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Johnny Depp is the front-runner for the recently-announced Frank Sinatra biopic.
The film is set up at Universal and the site is reporting that the studio is thrilled with Depp's performance in the studio's summer film Public Enemies, and are eyeing up Depp to star in this film, currently dubbed Sinatra, as well.
It was stated in the initial announcement that whoever plays Sinatra will not be required to sing, as his music rights, along with his life rights, were acquired in the deal to make the film.
Of course, the studio hasn't confirmed anything as of yet, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all updated surrounding this biopic.
