Pacino to play Spector

By | Published on Tuesday 12 October 2010

Al Pacino is apparently due to play Phil Spector in a new film about the life of the currently incarcerated music producer.

The as-yet-untitled film is currently in the early stages of development, with writer David Mamet and director Barry Levinson working on it for HBO Films. But Pacino’s agent, John L Burnham from International Creative Management, has confirmed to The New York Times that the actor is interested in working on the project because “he just saw a very interesting character to play, and he likes the sensibility of David and Barry”.

Spector is, of course, serving a prison sentence of nineteen years to life for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.
