The Al Pacino-headlined Phil Spector biopic seems to have been in the works for an eternity, but with the TV movie now less than two months away from its premiere, HBO Films has finally released a trailer, giving us our first real look at the Oscar-winning actor as the legendary music producer-turned murderer, who is currently serving 19 years to life in a California prison for the 2003 murder of actress Lana Clarkson.
Written and directed by David Mamet – the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind The Verdict, Wag the Dog, along with the likes of Glengarry Glen Ross and The Untouchables – the film centres on the relationship between Pacino’s Spector and his defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden, who is portrayed by Helen Mirren (Hitchcock). Also featuring in the cast is Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), who plays another of Spector’s defense lawyers, Bruce Cutler.

Phil Spector will receive its TV premiere on HBO in the States on March 24th at 9pm.
