Brian De Palma Directing Al Pacino As Joe Paterno

By

Brian De Palma is getting back together with his Scarface and Carlito's Way star Al Pacino for a biopic of Penn State's Joe Paterno. Pacino finds himself in a unique position to play Paterno, after doing the football coach thing in Any Given Sunday and portraying real-life controversial figures in HBO dramas about Jack Kevorkian and Phil Spector. Deadline reports the working title is Happy Valley and the specific Paterno focus is under wraps for now.
