Barry Levinson and Al Pacino

Last month we learned that Gotti: Three Generations would have actor Al Pacino reuniting with his You Don't Know Jack director Barry Levinson as the filmmaker stepped up to replace Nick Cassavetes. However, it looks like the duo will actually collaborate again before the crime family biopic gets off the ground. Deadline says the two will work together on an adaptation of Philip Roth's novel The Humbling next, and this news comes about a year and a half after hearing about the project in December of 2009. The story has Pacino playing an increasingly irrelevant actor who may find renewal in a younger woman.

Considering his roles recently, the character seems to hit a little too close to home as Pacino hasn't exactly measured up to the greatness which made his career so interesting to watch in decades passed. Perhaps this film could revive his career as the romance with a younger woman does in this story. With a script by The Graduate writer Buck Henry, it certainly sounds like a promising film. And since Pacino's work with Levinson garnered an Emmy win for the actor, let's hope more greatness from the actor is on the way. More casting should be coming shortly, so stay tuned as this project moves through development. Interested?

Interesting, Pacino was great up until Any Given Sunday, after that he's been boring to watch. Same thing with De Niro, and I don't think it's got to do with age, they just seem uninspired.
