Martin Scorcese puts together amazing cast for planned bio-pic of Frank Sinatra

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Martin Scorsese put together a super cast for a planned biopic of the American crooner Frank Sinatra. According to Variety, Leonardo DiCaprio is taking on the role of the singer, and Jennifer Lawrence is set to play Ava Gardner, Old Blue Eyes' second wife. All Scorsese is waiting on to make the film happen is a blessing from Frank Sinatra's daughter Tina, who controls her late father's estate. Ring-a-ding-ding.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "THE BEST IS YET TO COME")

FRANK SINATRA: (Singing) The best is yet to come.
