Mirren Replaces Midler In Spector Biopic

Helen Mirren is set to replace Bette Midler in HBO and David Mamet’s upcoming Phil Spector biopic reports TheWrap.

Mirren will assume the role of Linda Kenney Baden, one of Spector’s defense attorneys during his trial for the murder of actress/nightclub hostess Lana Clarkson.

Midler was forced to bow out last week after suffering a herniated disc. Al Pacino will play the ill-fated record producer while Jeffrey Tambor stars as defense attorney Bruce Cutler.
