Al Pacino will star as Joe Paterno in upcoming HBO biopic

An HBO film is in the works about controversial Penn State coach Joe Paterno, and it has been revealed today that Al Pacino will star.

The film is as of yet untitled and does not have a release date, but it will be Pacino's second partnership with director Barry Levinson after the Jack Kevorkian biopic You Don't Know Jack

We're certainly eager to see how the famous coach and his fall from grace is treated in the film.
