BBC Radio 4 will make a documentary program with Al Pacino.

British radio station BBC Radio 4 will release a documentary programme with Al Pacino, writes The Independent. In this show the actor will talk about his career as an actor and director.

Now Al Pacino is busy by filming the movie "Wilde Salome" on the play "Salome" by Oscar Wilde. In this radio programme Al Pacino will talk about his producer experience and its perception of the play, in which Al Pacino played on stage in two productions in 2003 and 2006. Pacino acted in a Broadway production of Salome in 2003, and later in Los Angeles in 2006.

He filmed the latter performance and edited it together with interviews about Wilde with Gore Vidal, Tom Stoppard and Bono. "I play Herod because crazy emperors work for me," Pacino says in the film. "As always, the world is his." However, when the movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month, The London Review of Books said it was "less a documentary proper than an enthusiast's rambling blog".

Pacino added: "I don't think of myself as a director but I'm making a film. I've found a taste for making movies I can wallow in and figure it out as I go. I've always tried to mix it up a little bit and that's what's kept me going."

A BBC spokesman said: "This programme will explore what inspired Pacino in his interpretation on film. Al Pacino uses a mix of documentary, fiction and improvisation to get to the root of the story, and this programme will try to find out the motivation for this unusual approach." The programme will be broadcast on 14 November.
