HBO is works to make a film about [lastfm]Phil Spector[/lastfm] and Al Pacino is going to star as the crazy haired record producer who is now serving a 19 year to life sentence for murder.
David Mamet will write and direct the untitled film. Barry Levinson, who won an Oscar for directing Rain Man, will serve as executive producer.
It’s almost another eerie casting for Pacino. Both he and Spector are 70-years-old and both share an imposing stare, which is said to be Spector’s favorite expression. If this film is anything like You Don’t Know Jack, where Pacino played Jack Kevorkian, sign me up.
