Al Pacino to Play Phil Spector for HBO


This sounds like fun: Al Pacino will star as record producer and now convicted murderer Phil Spector in an HBO movie to be written and directed by David Mamet. It's unclear whether the film will be a standard biopic, or just focus on murder investigation, though Al Pacino’s age and involvement would imply the latter. Either way, he'll look good with the trademark Spector do. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
