Tina Sinatra: Scorsese to Direct Bio on Her Dad

The Winnipeg Sun is reporting that Martin Scorsese will be directing a biographical picture about Frank Sinatra. According to Frank’s youngest daughter, Tina Sinatra, “That means dismissing scurrilous rumours that Sinatra was a stooge for the Mafia.”

“Sinatra admitted it is premature to officially announce Scorsese for the biopic. Initially, she referred to the director as ‘the most prominent Italian-American filmmaker’ working today in Hollywood.

“When Sun Media guessed Francis Ford Coppola, she said: ‘We adore him but he didn’t step up to it.’

“When Scorsese’s name followed, Sinatra offered this: ‘I can’t tell you yet but you’re warmer.’

“Laughing, Sinatra later confirmed it was Scorsese. ‘You’ll be reading about it very soon … oh, go ahead and print it, I don’t care!'”
