Al Pacino to Star in a New Revival of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ on Broadway?

Actor Al Pacino has been linked to a revival of Glengarry Glen Ross for the 2012-2013 season on Broadway, according to ArtsBeat. Producers are keeping mum on the details because the play is not official yet due to actor negotiations.

However, sources say that Pacino will be playing salesman Shelly ‘The Machine’ Levene in David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play.  This is a switch for the actor who played a different role, Ricky Roma, in the 1992 film adaptation—a role in which he was nominated for an Oscar.

Glengarry Glen Ross originally opened on Broadway in 1984, and was nominated for four Tonys.  The play was also recently revived in 2005—the production won best play revival at the Tonys.  That version starred Alan Alda as Levene and Liev Schreiber as Roma.
