By now, most people are familiar with the unfortunate information which unfolded in the latter days of Joe Paterno’s life, and the evidence which supported various allegations since then. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a movie is going to be created to tell the tale as described in Joe Posnanski’s book, PATERNO. With the news that Al Pacino is attached to portray the legendary coach, the film is likely to garner attention.
Al Pacino has starred in several projects already which had football at the core of its story, including ANY GIVEN SUNDAY and the lesser TWO FOR THE MONEY.
More on this project as details are ironed out.
