Al Pacino and Brian De Palma Team-Up Again For HAPPY VALLEY

The day Al Pacino uttered the classic words "Say hello to my little friend", was the day he was solidified as a force to be reckoned with within the acting community. Director Brian De Palma and Al Pacino made "Scarface" an iconic piece of film for its genre. Hearing that the two are teaming up again, seems like a no-brainer, fantastic idea.

The film is called "Happy Valley" and its a biopic about Penn State head football coach, Joe Paterno. Paterno dedicated his life to the game and that team, and was considered the most successful coach in college football history.

Close to locking a deal to pen the script is Dave McKenna, known for his writing credits on "American History X" and "Blow". McKenna will adapt the script based on Joe Posanski's best-selling book "Paterno". The story will show the rise of Paterno, up until his eventual fall, due to him being aware that his former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was a convicted pedophile.

We already know Pacino plays an excellent and inspiring coach, as seen in "Any Given Sunday". Are you excited for this film? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
