News Flash - Scorsese to direct Sinatra movie.

LondonJazz has drawn my attention to the news that Martin Scorsese is to direct the forthcoming movie on Old Blue Eyes and wonders who will play the title role? Any suggestions? Lance.

Lance said...

My Missus thinks Marti Pellow.

Valerie said...

Johnny Depp would be good.
