Actor Al Pacino got the lead role in Manglehorn, an upcoming drama movie directed by David Gordon Green based on a script by Paul Logan. Here’s a first official look at the actor in the film:
“AJ Manglehorn (Al Pacino) is an aging, ordinary guy in a small town. He nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a conversation with the local bank teller every Friday, and eats at the same place every day.
But there is more to Manglehorn than meets the eye: he’s an ex-con who, 40 years ago, gave up the woman of his dreams for a big ‘job’. He now obsesses daily over the choices he made. After a dramatic effort to start over, Manglehorn faces a terrifying moment and is unmasked as a guy with a very, very dark past.”
All Pacino as a man with a checkered past? And a former con-man with that? Great cast me think! Let’s hope the movie will make use of his talent!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
