Al Pacino and Brian De Palma Team Up for Joe Paterno Biopic
The two worked together on 'Scareface' and 'Carlito's Way'
Al Pacino and director Brian De Palma are expected to reunite for the upcoming film about Penn State coach Joe Paterno. The duo previously worked together on 1983’s “Scarface” and 1993’s “Carlito’s Way." The tentatively tilted “Happy Valley” Paterno movie will be a “story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw,” said producer Edward R. Pressman. David McKenna, screenwriter for “American History X,” is reportedly in talks with Pressman. De Palma was also behind “Carrie,” The Untouchables,” and “Mission; Impossible.”
