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.
