The highly anticipated Frank Sinatra directed by Martin Scorsese might not come around anymore as the 'Silence' and 'Goodfellas' revealed that he is leaving the project after years of preparation.

In an interview with Toronto Sun, Scorsese said that interference with Sinatra's family is what makes him pull out of the project, who were not comfortable with Scorsese's plans on revealing the iconic singer's mob background.

 “We can’t do it!…I think it is finally over. They (remaining members of the Sinatra clan) won’t agree to it. Open it up again and I’m there!” Scorsese said. “Certain things are very difficult for a family, and I totally understand. But, if they expect me to be doing it, they can’t hold back certain things. The problem is that the man was so complex. Everybody is so complex—but Sinatra in particular.”

Scorsese's 'Sinatra' movie has been on the script writing process as early as 2010 with Michael Chabon, with Leonardo DiCaprio headlining to star as Frank Sinatra.
