London, May 20 (ANI): Leonardo DiCaprio may get to play Frank Sinatra in a movie about the crooner - if he learns to sing, it has emerged.

The ‘Titanic’ star has reportedly hired a top vocal coach to teach him how to mimic Ol’ Blue Eyes, famed for hits including ‘New York, New York’.

According to sources, director Martin Scorsese has put DiCaprio at the top of his list to play Sinatra but insists that the actor must master the legend’s famous tones.

“Leo has hired a top vocal coach to get him sounding like Sinatra. He is a massive fan of the singer and has always wanted to play him,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

“He would be sick to miss out on the leading role because his singing wasn’t up to scratch.

“He is now in intensive vocal coaching lessons to replicate Sinatra’s distinctive style,” the source added. (ANI)
