Thanks to a prematurely leaked 2013 preview that has since been yanked offline, it has been around long enough for savvy folks to capture snaps of upcoming programming, and it looks like David Mamet's Phil Spector movie is finally arriving, with Al Pacino in the lead. Yes, that Al Pacino.

Shot all the way back in the summer of 2011, it's not clear why the usual quick turnaround for projects at the network has evaded this effort, but nonetheless, it's one we're looking forward to. Penned by Mamet, the film will chronicle the relationship between Spector and his defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren), with Jeffrey Tambor playing Bruce Cutler, another member of the defense team. Spector was put on trial in 2007 for the murder of actress/model Lana Clarkson. The first trial ended in a mistrial, but in the second he was found guilty and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison. The entire event recast the public image of Spector from the man who created the infamous Wall Of Sound pop technique, into something a bit more sinister.

No exact air date, but it's nice to know it's finally on the way. [Bleeding Cool]
