Al Pacino as Coach Joe Paterno First Peek

Last month, it was reported that Barry Levinson was set to film an HBO drama featuring former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, who would be played by Al Pacino.

He becomes involved in his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse scandal, which leads to his credibility and legacy being questioned and criticized.

Not much else is known about the Paterno film at this point, other than Riley Keough will play Sara Ganim, the 23-year-old journalist who broke the Penn State scandal, and that Annie Parisse has also been cast to star as Paterno's daughter, Mary Kay. Prosecutors chose not the seek criminal charges and it remains unclear what Paterno knew.

There is no release date for the movie. Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child molestation in June 2012.

In 2010, Pacino starred as Dr. Jack Kevorkian in the HBO- and Levinson-directed film You Don't Know Jack.
