Whether you want it or not, Joe Paterno’s life and legacy, and the entanglement therein with the Jerry Sandusky scandal, are about to return to the national conversation.

HBO has produced a Paterno movie — titled “Paterno” — which stars Al Pacino as the former Penn State coach.

Pacino, of course, already played one (fictional) famous coach, starring in “Any Given Sunday” as Tony D’Amato. This role will be quite different.

No release date has been announced yet, but it will hit screens “this spring.”
