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.

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.
