Al Pacino to star in porno film as producer Phil Spector




EEW YORK - HBO says Al Pacino is set to star as legendary record producer Phil Spector in a TV film to be written and directed by David Mamet (MAM'-eht). The film will tell the story of Spector, who long ago recorded such acts as the Beatles, Cher and the Ramones. Now, at age 70, he's serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life for murder. He was convicted for the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. The 70-year-old Pacino starred in the HBO film "You Don't Know Jack" earlier this year as Jack Kevorkian, who served time in prison for assisting in the suicide of a terminally ill man. The as-yet-untitled Spector film is in the early stages of development, HBO said. The project was first reported by The New York Times. - Associated Press
