We previously mentioned that Al Pacino had been cast as Joe Paterno in the Paterno biopic.

Well now we've got some more details!

The Oscar-winning actor will be teaming up with director Brian De Palma for the movie!

That's ahmayzing! They've worked together before on a little film called Scarface… maybe you've heard of it? LOLz!

The movie, with the working title Happy Valley, is being produced by Edward R. Pressman who said:

"'Happy Valley' reunites the 'Scarface' and 'Carlito's Way' team of De Palma and Pacino for the third time, and I can't think of a better duo to tell this story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw."

David McKenna, who wrote the screenplay for American History X is even in talks to adapt Joe Posnanski's biography Paterno into the movie version.

There's some serious talent involved in the making of this movie!

Can't wait to see the first trailer!
