Al Pacino as Coach Joe Paterno: First Peek

Al Pacino will star as Joe Paterno

A photo of Pacino made up as the former Penn State coach has been revealed, and the resemblance is uncanny. He becomes involved in his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse scandal, which leads to his credibility and legacy being questioned and criticized.

The movie will also star Riley Keough as Sara Ganim, the young journalist who won a Pulitzer for breaking the Sandusky story while working for a local newspaper in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. (Or at the very least, get people thinking about what Pacino looks like as Paterno with make-up and so forth.) Filming is reportedly taking place through September. Multi-time Oscar victor Barry Levinson is directing the project. He died in 2012 at the age of 85 following complications from lung cancer.

This will not be the first time Pacino, 77, has worked with HBO and Levinson.

No word yet on when we can see the film, but no doubt it will be an intriguing look into the life of Paterno during his career crisis.

There is now no release date set for the film.

HBO released the first image Sunday of its as-yet-untitled film that will chronicle the infamous Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Pacino starred in Levinson's "You Don't Know Jack", which followed the legal troubles of Jack Kevorkian.
