Al Pacino to play Phil Spector: Don't leave out these potential scenes!
It was only a matter of time before a film was made about Phil Spector. His life has been bonkers enough to at least warrant a made-for-TV movie. It turns out, this might just end up being the case. Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that David Mamet has been tapped to write the film for HBO Films. More important, Al Pacino is supposedly taking on the role of Spector himself.
Spector's pre-murder trial career was absolutely massive, but something tells us the film is likely to concentrate more on the, ahem, crazier aspects of Spector's life, namely the murder of Lana Clarkson. We can't help but hope a few of the producer's wackier hijinks make it into the film, even if they come in the form of a cheesy flashback. Click through to see which aspects (and rumored aspects) of Spector's life and career that should be in the film, regardless of its concentration.
