The Hunger Games scribe Billy Ray will be the next to tackle Martin Scorsese's Sinatra

Here's a project that is still being tossed back and forth-- Martin Scorsese's SINATRA biopic has found itself another writer to tackle their own draft of the script. THE HUNGER GAMES writer Billy Ray has been hired to give his take on the interesting life of old blue eyes.

I think this project was sort of a "if we can get everything in the right order, then we can do it" scenario.. Scorsese never half-asses anything, and this will be a biopic on the same level as THE AVIATOR. However, Sinatra has more of a hardcore devoted following than eccentric billionaire, Howard Hughes. There's a lot of ground to cover with Sinatra's early life, time with the rat pack, his film career, and times with the beautiful ladies.

Phil Alden Robinson (FIELD OF DREAMS) was the writer originally hired.

What I'm wondering is who they will get to play Sinatra? Who could easily tap into his persona? They certainly don't make men like that anymore.

Scorsese is currently working on WOLF OF WALL STREET starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jon Favreau, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin and Kyle Chandler.

A much younger Ed Harris would have been good.
But you know it'll be Leo...

With right make-up, the guy can be Frank Sinatra. But what about the singing part?
