File this under “things that cannot be real”: On a promotional run through India for “Shutter Island”, Martin Scorsese apparently declared he’d like Al Pacino and Robert De Niro to play Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in his upcoming Sinatra biopic.
That’s a misquote, right? I mean, it’s got to be. Of course, if Kevin Spacey could make a Bobby Darin movie, I guess anything’s possible … but I was kinda hoping the project would end up with Soderbergh, who’d change up his “Ocean’s Eleven” formula and cast Matt Damon as Sinatra, George Clooney as Martin and Don Cheadle as Sammy Davis, Jr.
Think about it for a second. That would be something to see.
