We smell the Oscar already!

Martin Scorsese has being planning for a while that he wants to make a Frank Sinatra biopic, and he wants his favourite actor Leonardo DiCaprio to play the main man.

The two just worked together on the multiple award-winning Killers Of The Flower Moon and are showing no signs of slowing down.

But there’s one thing that could be stopping this film from being made and that’s Tina Sinatra, the famous crooner’s daughter.

Tina controls Frank Sinatra’s estate and has blocked a film about her father’s life being made in the past.

Which isn't hugely surprising since it aims to cover the period of Sinatra's life where his marriage to Tina's mother, Nancy Barbato, was broken up by his affair with Ava Gardner.

In a recent interview Scorsese revealed that he’s being working on getting the film made since 2009 and he’s making renewed efforts now to hopefully get Tina Sinatra onside.

Hopefully the stacked cast and critically acclaimed director will finally away her!
