Al Pacino, Brian De Palma to reunite for a new film

Pacino

Veteran actor Al Pacino and director Brian De Palma will team up once-again for a new film 'Happy Valley' about a disgraced American football coach Joe Paterno.

The 'Scarface' duo are coming together for a true story movie about Penn State football coach, who was a well respected coach until a child sex abuse scandal surrounding his former assistant coach ended his career, reported Contactmusic.

'Wall Street' producer Edward R Press is behind the project after getting the rights to 'Paterno', a biography on the controversial coach by Joe Posnanski.

"'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," Press said.

Pacino has previously played a troubled football coach Tony D'Amato in 1999's 'Any Given Sunday'.
