Al Pacino takes the place of De Niro in Son of No One

Not too sure what the general opinion of Al Pacino is right now, but he's filling the shoes left by Robert De Niro in SON OF NO ONE directed by Dito Montiel.

The film stars Channing Tatum as a young cop who is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, and a secret threatens to destroy his life and family. The script was penned by Montiel.

Hannibal Pictures is joining with Nu Image/Millenium Films to co-produce and co-distribute the movie, which begins shooting in New York on March 22.

Terrence Howard, Ray Liotta, and Katie Holmes are in various stages of negotiation to join the cast.

I'm sure you all remember when Pacino worked with Nu Image on RIGHTEOUS KILL. I gave it a try and was not all too impressed. I'm sure I'll give this a try as well. For me, it's hard to say no to Pacino. On the other hand, I can do without Tatum.

Extra Tidbit: It's really hard for me to imagine Pacino as Han Solo. Apparently that was one of the many roles he's turned down in the span of his career.
