Pacino powers ‘Humbling’

Levinson to helm for before duo reunites on 'Gotti'

Nu Image/Millennium Films has come onboard to finance an adaptation of Philip Roth’s “The Humbling” and is planning a fall start with Al Pacino starring and Barry Levinson directing.

“The Humbling” has been in development since December 2009, when it was announced that Pacino had bought feature rights to produce with Levinson helming and Buck Henry penning the script.

Levinson and Michal Zebede have since worked on the screenplay, which centers on a suicidal stage actor undergoing a crisis brought on when his wife leaves him. He checks himself into a psych ward.

Pacino and Levinson teamed last year on the Jack Kevorkian biopic “You Don’t Know Jack,” for which Pacino won an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Thesp also signed on last month to the cast of indie mob drama “Gotti: Three Generations,” which Levinson will direct; Pacino will portray Gotti associate Neil Dellacroce.

Fiore Films is planning to begin shooting “Gotti,” also starring John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Joe Pesci and Lindsay Lohan, in January.
