There is now no release date set for the film.

Paterno died in January 2012, just months after he was sacked from his job following the revelation that he covered up Sandusky's sexual abuse crimes. Pacino starred in Levinson's "You Don't Know Jack", which followed the legal troubles of Jack Kevorkian. His record was tarnished after NCAA vacated 111 of the games he had won, all of which occurred between 1998-when he allegedly first had knowledge of Sandusky's conduct-and the end of his coaching career in 2011, when he was forced to resign.

HBO has given a sneak peek at what Al Pacino will look like as Joe Paterno in the upcoming movie about the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

According to Variety, the film will focus heavily on the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
