Al Pacino has joined his fellow actor Robert De Niro in embracing fatherhood later in life. Following De Niro’s announcement of welcoming a baby at the age of 79, it was revealed last month that the 83-year-old Pacino would also be having a child with his 29-year-old girlfriend, Noor Alfallah. Now, according to TMZ, Pacino and Noor have joyfully welcomed their new arrival. Pacino’s representative, Stan Rosenfield, confirmed the news, stating, “I am confirming that Al Pacino and Noor Alfallah have welcomed a son, named Roman Pacino.”
Roman is Pacino’s fourth child. His eldest daughter, Julie Marie Pacino, was born in 1989 to acting coach Jan Tarrant. Pacino also has twins, Anton James and Olivia Rose Pacino, born in 2001, with his former partner Beverly D’Angelo, known for her role in National Lampoon’s Vacation. Recently, there were rumors that Pacino requested a paternity test from Alfallah due to a physical condition that may have affected his ability to conceive. Reports indicated that Alfallah willingly agreed to the test, which confirmed Pacino’s paternity.
In terms of Pacino’s upcoming projects, it was previously reported that he will be part of the cast for the indie drama Easy’s Waltz, written and directed by Nico Pizzolatto. The film, described as a combination of “Swingers” and “A Star Is Born,” will also feature Vince Vaughn, Michelle Monaghan, and Simon Rex. Pacino is also currently involved in the production of the noir thriller Knox Goes Away, alongside James Marsden and Michael Keaton, who is also directing the film. The movie, penned by Gregor Poirier, reunites Pacino with his Mystic River co-star Marcia Gay Harden from 2003.
Regarding the much-anticipated sequel to the 1995 crime film Heat, directed by Michael Mann, negotiations are underway at Warner Bros. for the development of Heat 2. The film would be based on Mann’s recent novel of the same name, which was published in August and became a bestseller. New Regency, which co-financed the original film, has the opportunity to co-finance Heat 2 if the project moves forward. While it was previously rumored that Adam Driver might star as a younger version of Robert De Niro’s character, Neil McCauley, Pacino’s involvement in the sequel remains unclear at this stage.
