Brian, who directed Al in the 1983 gangster film, has signed up to work with the star on a movie about the late former Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno, Deadline reported.

The film, which has a tentative title of Happy Valley, is reportedly expected to depict how Paterno's legacy at the school was tarnished by the revelation of his knowledge of defensive co-ordinator Jerry Sandusky's molestation of children.

Al - who also played a football coach in the 1999 film Any Given Sunday - has been attached to play Paterno for some time.

He is also set to star in an upcoming film version of Shakespeare's King Lear, which is currently in pre-production.
