Interestingly, Jennifer Lawrence is also rumoured to be attached to the film, portraying Sinatra’s second wife, Ava Gardner. Both DiCaprio and Lawrence have previously worked together on Netflix’s 2021 sci-fi comedy Don’t Look Up. 
 
An international publication reported that Scorsese plans to shoot two films back-to-back, the first about Jesus and the second about Sinatra. However, the iconic actor-singer’s daughter, Tina Sinatra, who controls her father’s estate, has not given yer nod to the  filmmaker. Nonetheless, that has not stopped the 81-year-old director from attaching huge names to the production.
