Helen Mirren to Join HBO Film on Phil Spector

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Helen Mirren reportedly will replace Bette Midler in an HBO film about music producer Phil Spector that will star Al Pacino.

Midler was set to play Spector's attorney during his first murder trial, but she was forced to drop out due to a herniated disc.

Spector is serving 19 years to life in prison on a second-degree murder conviction for the fatal shooting of actress Lana Clarkson in 2003.
