London (ANI): Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese will produce and direct a big screen biopic on Frank Sinatra. The 66-year-old helmer will make the film for Universal and Mandalay Pictures. Universal and Mandalay announced the project in a joint statement.

However, no word was made on which actor would play Sinatra, reports The Telegraph. After securing the rights to iconic singer and actor's life, both the companies have been developing the Sinatra project, according to Daily Variety.

Sinatra made his first recording in 1939 and continued recording almost until his death, being responsible for such classics as 'Strangers in the Night' and 'My Way'. He married three times and had three children. He died in 1998 of a heart attacked, aged 82.
