Watch: Al Pacino portrays Phil Spector in new HBO film

HBO has released a teaser trailer clip for "Phil Spector," the upcoming movie starring Al Pacino as the famed but troubled music producer, and Helen Mirren as his defense lawyer, Linda Kenney Baden. Directed by playwright David Mamet, "Phil Spector" is set to air March 24

The movie chronicles Spector's troubles with the law, including being accused of the second-degree murder of actress Lana Clarkson in 2003. After a 2007 hung jury, he was found guilty two years later and is currently serving time in a California prison.

According to The New York Post, film producers asked Spector to be a consultant for the movie, but he declined.

"He chose to have no involvement with them at all," lawyer Dennis Riordan said. "He certainly doesn't view it as an accurate portrayal of what went on at the trial -- because it is not. It has invented events."

The film also stars Jeffrey Tambor, Clara Mamet and Rebecca Pidgeon.
