Al Pacino Might Play Old Rocker Dad

Update your notes: Dan Fogelman's directorial debut, Imagine, has lost a Steve Carell but gained an Al Pacino. Back in November, we first learned of Carell's plans to re-team with his Crazy Stupid Love writer, playing the estranged son of a Bruce Springsteen-esque music legend, but Variety now says scheduling conflicts will be stopping that from happening. The good news for Fogelman, though, is he does have Pacino in talks to play the father, an aging rock star who decides to finally meet his long-lost son after reading a personal letter from John Lennon. So if you're looking for a film about a dead Beatle solving a paternity quandary from beyond the grave, this is probably going to be the film for you.
