Pacino Joining Departed Sequel

Now here’s a reunion worth salivating over – Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro.

Reuters reports that Al Pacino is being sought for a key role in the upcoming sequel to “The Departed” which focuses on Mark Wahlberg’s foul-mouthed cop character.

As already revealed, the story revolves around the corruption of politics this time around as Wahlberg goes undercover to bring down a ruthless senator (Robert DeNiro). Pacino is tipped to play Wahlberg’s new boss – a force veteran who may not be as clean as he appears.

In related news Alec Baldwin is scheduled to reprise his role from “The Departed,” whilst things are moving forward with enough speed that the film could very well be Scorsese’s next project.
