Johnny Depp to Play Frank Sinatra in Biopic

Johnny Depp is reportedly going to play Frank Sinatra in a biopic about the legendary singer. Martin Scorcese will direct, and rather than going with his normal choice for leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, he wants Johnny.

Sources say Universal is thrilled with Depp’s performance in the upcoming movie Public Enemies, and “very much wants to stay in the Johnny Depp business.”

Sounds like a role he can’t refuse! And plus, Johnny won’t even have to go to vocal training, since they’ll be using Sinatra’s own recordings for the film. Sinatra Enterprises made sure of that!

This would be the first partnering between Depp and Scorcese. Do you think Johnny could pull off playing “Ole Blue Eyes?”
