Bette Midler and Al Pacino are set to appear in a TV film for US network HBO about Phil Spector’s murder trial. The film will dramatise the trials that led to the legendary record producer being jailed for nineteen years for the shooting of one time actress Lana Clarkson at his home in 2003.

Pacino will play Spector, while Midler is expected to play Linda Kenny Baden, one of the producer’s defence team. ‘Arrested Development’ actor Jeffrey Tambor is also reportedly on board to play another of Spector’s lawyers, Bruce Cutler.
