Leonardo DiCaprio: No Plans to Play Frank Sinatra Yet


Leonardo DiCaprio


Leonardo DiCaprio, who has played leading man in four Martin Scorsese's films, rules out speculation that he will portray Frank Sinatra in the director's upcoming biopic.

Leonardo DiCaprio has distanced himself from reports he's set to portray Frank Sinatra in director Martin Scorsese's upcoming biopic of the late entertainer. The "Raging Bull" filmmaker is set to bring "Ol' Blue Eyes" life story to the big screen in forthcoming film "Sinatra" - and DiCaprio, who has been Scorsese's leading man four times to date, was rumored to be stepping into the "My Way" singer's shoes.

But the "Titanic" hunk is baffled by the reports - because he has not been approached to star in the film. He tells New York Magazine, "There are no plans to do that (portray Sinatra) as of yet." Scorsese admits the movie has been stalled as screenwriters work on the script, but he insists whoever ends up playing the "Rat Pack" legend on the big screen will not be showing off their vocal talents - because the singer's hits are classics.

The director tells the Hollywood Reporter's columnist Roger Friedman, "With those records, Frank will do the singing. But we're waiting for a finished script." "Sinatra" is expected to hit movie theaters in 2011.
