The New York Times Arts Beat is reporting that Al Pacino will star in an adaptation of Philip Roth’s latest novel, The Humbling. The film will be directed by Academy Award winning director Barry Levinson (Rain ManBugsy) and will be written by legendary screenwriter Buck Henry (The GraduateTo Die For).  Pacino will star in the lead role and also bought the movie rights to the novel, which is about “an aging and irrelevant stage actor who finds hope of renewal through a younger woman”.  This sounds pretty bland and cliche to me, but I do have a little bit of hope for this one just because of Buck Henry’s involvement.

Barry Levinson and Al Pacino also just finished working together on the cleverly named Jack Kevorkian biopic, You Don’t Know Jack, which will air on HBO sometime next year.
