Helen Mirren Replacing Bette Midler For ‘Phil Spector’ Biopic

HBO Films is shooting a movie, Phil Spector starring Al Pacino and Bette Midler was supposed to be his co-star.  But, unfortunately, she had to pull out for medical reasons (herniated disc) and HBO was forced to find a replacement, according to Deadline.  Well, they did a really good job and got themselves Oscar winner, Helen Mirren.  OMG.  I adore her!

Bette is wonderful… but Helen… yeah, she’s adding a whole new level to this HBO movie.

The movie explores the client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector (Pacino) and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Mirren), who represented Spector during his first trial for murder.
