In one of the strangest exits in recent memory, Al Pacino has left the production of 'Despicable Me 2,' which is set to hit theaters July 3. But it was just announced that Benjamin Bratt is replacing him. They'll have to work pretty quick if they want to hit theaters exactly two months from today.

SNL knows that it is a good thing in Bill Hader's wonderfully deranged Al Pacino impression and they put it to good use on last night's episode, having the incredibly talented performer play Pacino playing multiple roles. Parodying Pacino's involvement in HBO films like 'You Don't Know Jack' and 'Phil Spector,' the sketch finds Hader's Pacino making HBO biopics where he plays every convicted murderer under the sun.
The new 'Despicable Me 2' trailer is here and it's here to remind us that even with all the Iron Men and Supermen in theaters this summer, 'Despicable Me 2' is one film you shouldn't discount when it comes to what could be the biggest movies of 2013. Yup, the kiddies are gonna love this one (oh, okay, we admit we think we're gonna love it too...).
With the trailer for HBO's 'Phil Spector,' it's easy to fixate on the tabloid nature of the project and Al Pacino's multitude of wigs. Sure, that's what the real Phil Spector looked like in court, but will that overwhelm this true life story about Spector's court time and possible murder of Lana Clarkson? Hopefully writer/director David Mamet has some tricks up his sleeve.
Don't let the title of Brian De Palma's latest fool you -- the director is re-teaming with his 'Scarface' star Al Pacino to take on the not-so-happy story of Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State football coach who got caught up in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
Trivia: Though Al Pacino and Christopher Walken never starred opposite each other before 2013's 'Stand Up Guys,' they have appeared in one movie together. That film? 2003's 'Gigli.' Which sets the bar low for their new movie. The good news is that their new film looks entertaining.
The wounds may not be healed, but as the biography 'Paterno' is currently a best seller, it's no surprise that people are trying to put together a biographical picture about Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. Currently Al Pacino is attached to star - though it seems more likely to end up an HBO movie than a theatrical one.
Al Pacino, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in 1992's 'Glengarry Glen Ross' is returning for a new production of the classic David Mamet story, but this time in a completely different role.
