If you enjoyed the movie, Any Given Sunday, chances are you’ve been itching to see Al Pacino playing the role of a football coach one more time.  And now, it appears as though your wishes have been answered.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Al Pacino is set to star as infamous Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno.  The movie, which belongs to HBO and will be produced and directed by Barry Levinson, has yet to be given a name.  It will center around the life of Paterno, from his days as the legendary ball coach of the Nittany Lions, to his fall from grace following the Jerry Sandusky scandal—which eventually led to his firing in November 2011, and his passing two months later.
