Leonardo DiCaprio is reportedly in talks to play Frank Sinatra in a biopic of the crooner’s life.
The Sun claims the actor has hired a vocal coach to win him the part in Martin Scorsese’s proposed movie.
Dicaprio has already starred in Gangs of New York and The Departed for the legendary director.
A source told the newspaper: “Leo has hired a top vocal coach to get him sounding like Sinatra. He is a massive fan and has always wanted to play him.”
Reports say the Sinatra film- which has been in development for years- will focus on his dealings with the mafia.
Earlier this week reports claimed Jamie Foxx might bag the role as My Way singer Frank.
If Leo can get his voice up to scratch we think he would be the perfect fit…
