He took on the real-life role of Dr. Jack Kevorkian in 2010 for an HBO biopic, and now Al Pacino is taking on another controversial, headline-grabbing character, acclaimed music producer and convicted killer Phil Spector.
Starring alongside Helen Mirren, the film centers around the drama between Phil Spector (Pacino) and his defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Mirren) during the music legend's first trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson.
The movie has sparked a bit of controversy with some saying that it's sympathetic to Spector. Mirren has come out in defense of the film and her character, saying, "Lana was obviously a really, really lovely woman and, quite rightly, her friends are worried that she will be dissed and she is certainly not dissed in our story at all."
Phil Spector premieres Sunday, March 24 at 9/8c on HBO. Will you be watching?
