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

By AMC February 5, 2013

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.
