A photo of Pacino made up as the former Penn State coach has been revealed, and the resemblance is uncanny.
Barry Levinson has signed on as executive producer and director of the film, which will chronicle the scandal that tarnished Paterno's legacy, almost destroyed the Penn State football program, resulted in jail time for several university administrators and shattered dozens of lives.
There is now no release date set for the film. Pacino won Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his role as Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Other stars in the film include Kathy Baker, as wife Sue Paterno, Greg Grunberg (as son Scott Paterno), Annie Parisse (as daughter Mary Kay Paterno) and Riley Keough as reporter Sara Ganim.
Sandusky, who was Paterno's assistant coach between 1969 and 1999, was found guilty on 45 counts of sexual abuse during his reign at the school.
We haven't heard much about the film since it was initially announced, but now we have a first-look at Pacino portraying Paterno for the upcoming film.
Shortly after being fired as Penn State football coach in 2012, Paterno died due to complications from lung cancer.

Paterno coached the Nittany Lions to 409 victories from 1966 to 2011 - 111 of which were vacated because of the scandal.
