Pacino And Levinson Will Go ‘Humbling’ Before They Go ‘Gotti’

Before ensuring that every member of the Travolta clan is eligible for their SAG benefits in Gotti: Three Generations, star Al Pacino and director Barry Levinson just have this one thing they have to take care of first - The Humbling.

The Humbling is a film based on a Phillip Roth novel of the same name and will star Pacino as a retired stage actor who moves to upstate New York and takes up with a much younger woman. That’s it. That’s the plot, per Deadline. I mean, if I was Pacino or Levinson, I wouldn’t be in too huge a hurry to make the increasingly bizarre Gotti movie either, but I’m not sure that this new project is that much of an improvement. I mean, there’s not even a single Travolta in The Humbling!

The Humbling starts filming this fall, so dont expect to see Gotti until late 2012 at the earliest. From a glass-is-half-full perspective, perhaps the delay will allow everyone to take a big deep breath and figure out how the hell Lindsay Lohan and Joe Pesci are supposed to share a trailer.
