HBO’s Phil Spector bio pic – which was written and directed by David Mamet and creatively titled Phil Spector, will debut next month. Yesterday, they dropped the trailer, which shows Al Pacino doing a great job of bringing Spector-level crazy to the screen. Via The Vulture:
Of course Pacino would go HAM on that role. Helen Mirren plays the attorney tasked with defending Spector. And a bunch of sleeping dogs play Spector’s wigs. The film premieres on HBO on March 24, and by March 26 or 27, your ears will stop ringing from all of the Pacino-screams.
It looks really promising. Our only question is this: Can Helen Mirren keep her accent from slipping for two solid hours?
