It seems that a biopic of a controversial 1990s figure might be getting a big-name star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Al Pacino is in negotiations to star in You Don't Know Jack, a biopic on controversial doctor, Jack Kevorkian.

Barry Levinson is set to direct the film, from a script by Adam Mazer (Breach), which is loosely based off the book, "Between the Dying and the Dead: Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the Assisted Suicide Machine and the Battle to Legalize Euthanasia" by Neal Nicol.

The film will follow his rise to infamy with his first assisted suicide and the constant legal battles and media hype that ensued. No production schedule was given for the film.
