Very mild spoilers for Beauty & The Beast. Big spoilers for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1
Brave man, Bill Condon. The director who has given us films as diverse as Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh, Dreamgirls, Gods And Monsters, two Twilight movies and Kinsey has turned his attention to the live action take on Disney’s 1991 classic, Beauty And The Beast. During his stop off in London to promote the movie, he spared us some time for a chat. Here’s how it went…
I’m your toughest crowd, I suspect. I always wondered what it’d be like if someone ever remade my favourite film and I had to interview them.
What’s you’re favourite film?
Er, the 1991 version of Beauty And The Beast.
Oooohhhhh. Well tell me the things you miss from the original film. »

Literally about 15 minutes ago I’m scrolling through the channels of my TV and My Cousin Vinny is on. The second it comes on I see Marisa Tomei in the middle of her routine when she asks Joe Pesci to pretend he’s a deer getting shot in the head. I think to myself, “how in the world did Marisa Tomei win best supporting actress that year?” I ask myself the same question about how Driving Miss Daily won best picture when it was up against Dead Poets Society, Born on the Fourth of July, Field of Dreams, and My Left

Ah, now this is a shame. For a while now, one of the directorial projects on the slate of Martin Scorsese has been a biopic of the late Frank Sinatra. Reports had previously suggested that Scorsese wanted Al Pacino to play an older Sinatra, with Robert De Niro taking on the role of Dean Martin. Michael Chabon had been working on the screenplay for the movie, although more recently Field Of Dreams writer/director Phil Alden Robinson had been working on the script.
Following the release of his latest film, Silence, Scorsese’s next project will be a long-awaited reunion with Robert De Niro, with The Irishman (that’s also set to feature Joe Pesci and Pacino). But it seems that the Sinatra project has now completely died a death. »
For several years now, Martin Scorsese has been trying to get a Frank Sinatra biopic off the ground. Back in 2009, the filmmaker became attached to the project and over time, both Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams) and Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) had been working on scripts. At one point, Leonardo DiCaprio was even set to star. However, the pieces never quite came together.
The main issue was with Sinatra’s estate, as they weren’t happy with how the director was going to present the iconic singer. Scorsese’s idea, you see, was to give audiences a complete look at Frank Sinatra’s life, warts and all. That means diving into his mob connections. For obvious reasons, his family wasn’t alright with this approach and as such, the film never materialized.
Now, in a recent interview to promote his new movie Silence, Scorsese has revealed that despite »

Martin Scorsese has exited a long-promised Frank Sinatra biopic. Field of Dreams screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson and Hunger Games screenwriter Billy Ray had been working on scripts for the film at various times, with The Toronto Sun reporting that Leonardo DiCaprio was set to star.
"We can't do it," Scorsese told The Toronto Sun. "I think it is finally over. [Sinatra's estate] won't agree to it. Open it up again and I'm there."
Scorsese, whose new movie Silence is out now, said he had hoped to make an unfettered portrait of both the singer's highs and lows. »
