The man behind the film “Glengarry Glen Ross” is taking on some new material and has signed on Al Pacino to play the role of the controversial music producer Phil Spector. Playwright David Mamet will write and direct “Phil Spector” an imagined story of the relationship between Spector and the attorney who defended him against the charge of murdering his wife in 2003.

It was an unexpected subject of interest for Mamet who had initially dismissed Spector as a lunatic, but in watching a documentary about the legendary music producer, came to think of him as brilliant and began to question whether he was truly guilty of murder.

Helen Mirren will star alongside Al Pacino as Linda Kenney Baden, the attorney who defended Spector through both of his murder trials.  Spector, changed the world of pop music back in the 1960’s working with acts like the Beatles, Leonard Cohen and the Ronettes, he is currently serving a 19 year prison sentence.
