Al Pacino as Dr. Jack Kevorkian (aka Dr. Death)

Al Pacino as Dr. Jack Kevorkian (aka Dr. Death)Submit Comment
Al Pacino is in negotiations to star in "You Don't Know Jack," an HBO Films biopic about Dr Jack Kevorkian that Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Wag the Dog) will direct.

Kevorkian, also known as Dr. Death, assisted in more than 150 cases of suicide and had beaten the state court system in Michigan numerous times, but was finally convicted after he willingly sent a videotape of himself euthanizing a terminally ill man to "60 Minutes." He was convicted of second-degree murder in 1999 and is serving his sentence in a maximum-security prison in Michigan.

The film will trace his rise as he builds his infamous "Mercy Machine," conducts his first assisted suicide, and starts a media frenzy with his epic legal battles defending a patient's right to die.

Adam Mazer (Breach) wrote the script, which is loosely based on "Between the Dying and the Dead: Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the Assisted Suicide Machine and the Battle to Legalize Euthanasia" by Neal Nicol.

The project has been in development for some time, with Ben Kingsley once attached to play Kevorkian.

Pacino should play this part with the same character he played in d*ck Tracy!
