Although the project is focused on Sinatra, it's unclear whether it will cover his entire life or a specific period in his life. There are numerous stories from Sinatra's life to choose from. The filmmakers could focus on his relationships with some of Hollywood's biggest stars, his alleged Mafia ties that the FBI invested, or his days with the Rat Pack.
Tina attended the unveiling of a new statue of her father in his hometown of Hoboken, New Jersey, just a few days before the announcement.
