I can seriously see Pacino killing this role! With a little hollywood magic Pacino will look exactly like Joe Paterno. The tentative title of the movie is going to be “Happy Valley”, but that could change. Hopefully the movie will be more about Paterno and not so much about the Jerry Sandusky issue, which is what let to the demise of Paterno. The movie is going to be based mostly of the novel “Paterno” written by Joe Posnanski. The movie will team Pacino with Scarface director Brian De Palma. Check the gallery for a funny pic of Paterno as “Scarface”. Read more after the jump.
BleacherReport has the quote from producer Edward Pressman. “Happy Valley reunites the Scarface and Carlito’s Way team of De Palma and Pacino for the third time and I can’t think of a better duo to tell this story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw”. No start or release dates were given for the film. I agree, I can see this movie being a classic with the right man playing the role, and seriously, when has Pacino ever let you down?
