Brian DePalma to direct Al Pacino Paterno film

Kudos to Pacino. He takes on the most unlikable of characters.

To many people, r1, Paterno is not unlikeable.

Personally, I hope Paterno is shoveling shit in hell. But it will be interesting where the sympathy lies in this film.

Hopefully he'll get slashed to death with a straight razor.

Split screens and shower scenes!

And I can play the Lady Paterno in my long awaited Screen Comeback!!!

Brian DePalma's last film was "The Black Dahlia" several years ago, and while I think it was better than its critical reputation, he will need to make sure the scripting goes a lot better than it did on that one.

Sandusky asks Paterno to "say hello to his little friend"

R6, he made "Redacted" a year after "Dahlia" (Perhaps it never played in your area.)

DePalma has since made Passion, which is based on a French film. It comes out early next year or so.

I like De Palma and the story of the Black Dahlia is fascinating but that movie was a mess and a boring mess at that.

Will Michelle Pfeiffer be playing Sue?

Plug it up! Plug it up! Plug it up!

De Palma can't do drama. Everything in his films are OTT nonsense.

r13 have you seen Casualties of War?

If anything, De Palma has trouble with comedy.

Any casting sugestions?

Come on, this is DL!

I'm sure that DePalma will make room for several soft core lesbian love scenes.

Maybe he can give a part to his nephew again

"I'm sure that DePalma will make room for several soft core lesbian love scenes."

Exactly how would he make that happen in this movie? Maybe he can invent a subplot about Sue Paterno and Dottie Sandusky having a secret love affair
