Watch The First Trailer For New Joe Paterno Movie, ‘Paterno’, Starring Al Pacino (VIDEO)

Joe Paterno went from being one of the most lovable, respected figures in all of sports to the face of a heinous scandal that rocked college football and the lives of so many.

HBO is set to release the first film that covered the events of covering up assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s years of repeated pedophilia of young boys and men that ultimately lead to the fall of the disgraced Penn State football coach since his death in 2012.

Al Pacino plays Joe Paterno, and from the looks of it does it pretty well.

The film is set to release this spring.
