London: Al Pacino, who is starring as disgraced music producer Phil Spector in an upcoming TV movie of the same name, has declared that he is not sure that the songwriter is guilty of murder.

He said, ahead of the film`s first screening on US television on March 20, that he was left with an ambivalence.

The 72-year-old actor told the Daily Express that the film`s director David Mamet is even more convinced of Spector`s innocence of the 2003 murder of Lana Clarkson.

Actress and model Lana Clarkson was 40 when she was found fatally shot at Spector`s California mansion.

Spector`s initial trial in 2007 ended with the jury unable to reach a verdict but a second jury found him guilty of second degree murder in 2009 and he was sentenced to 19 years.
