HBO has released the first image of actor Al Pacino as he prepares to take on the role of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.
The film will be directed by Barry Levinson and will focus on the fallout from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Paterno passed away shortly after the scandal broke in 2011. Prosecutors chose not the seek criminal charges and it remains unclear what Paterno knew.
The film, which remains untitled, also starts Annie Parisse who will play Mary Kay Paterno, Joe Paterno’s daughter.
