In The Post, director Steven Spielberg delivers a remarkable and timely film about freedom of the press, a story set in 1971 that has striking echoes for the present. President Nixon, who disdains the press, seeks to prevent publication of embarrassing secret government documents that expose decades of deceit of the American people on the Vietnam War.

Spielberg structures The Post like a thriller, racing a ticking-clock and filled with intrigue. The director has put together a stellar cast for this top-notch thriller, led by Tom Hanks as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep as the paper’s publisher Katharine Graham, the first women publisher of a major daily newspaper.

Scorsese to Tackle Frank Sinatra

Universal and Mandalay will bring the first feature-length biopic of Frank Sinatra to the big screen, with the legendary Martin Scorsese directing. No actors are yet attached to the untitled project, but Leonardo DiCaprio should be considered a prime candidate, since he has starred in Scorsese's last four movies.

"Ol' Blue Eyes" received the small-screen treatment in 1992 with the TV miniseries Sinatra, which starred Philip Casnoff and won two Golden Globes. However, bringing a big-screen movie to fruition proved a daunting task. Executive producers Peter Guber and Cathy Schulman apparently worked for several years to acquire all the necessary rights to Sinatra's music and life story, Schulman told Variety:

The responsibility we are taking on to tell his story ... that would cause anyone to be very careful about who they grant these rights to.... Everyone knows that Marty Scorsese is a final-cut director. So there had to be a

Scorsese set to direct Sinatra biopic

Scorsese set to direct Sinatra biopic
Frank Sinatra is finally getting his biopic, directed by no less a celebrity profiler than Martin Scorsese.

Universal Pictures has acquired "Sinatra," a script by "Field of Dreams" screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson with Scorsese attached to helm. Mandalay Pictures' Peter Guber and Cathy Schulman are producing along with Scorsese and his Sikelia Prods.

The deal comes after years of negotiations with Frank Sinatra Enterprises, a joint venture of the crooner's estate and Warner Music Group. Internal politics of the estate, where family members had to form a consensus as to how to tell the story and, more importantly, just how much of the story to tell -- was a hurdle that had to be overcome.

"The obstacles were ones of comfort and trust," Schulman said. "Everybody that was in control of the rights had to unanimously agree to do this. And having Marty at the head of this was
