Additionally, Pacino had recently turned down the offer to reprise the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather: The Game, due to the fact that his voice had changed dramatically since he played the young Michael. As a result, Electronic Arts could not use Pacino's likeness or voice in the game (although Michael does appear in it). It is rumored that this decision was made by Pacino due to a conflict with EA's rival game publisher, Vivendi Universal, which is preparing to publish a competing movie-to-game adaptation of the 1983 remake of Scarface, titled Scarface: The World is Yours.

The qualitative consistency of Pacino's performances, as well as his larger-than-life onscreen presence, has established him as one of the world's major actors. Pacino still performs theater work and has also dabbled in directing. While The Local Stigmatic remains unreleased, his theatrical feature Looking for Richard and his film festival-screened Chinese Coffee earned good notices. Several characters essayed by Pacino are famous in popular culture. On the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains, he is only the second actor to have three appearances on both lists: on the heroes as Frank Serpico and on the villains list as Tony Montana and Michael Corleone.

With takings comparatively quiet at the box-office of late, Pacino looks like stepping up a gear in 2007 with several new projects. He will star in Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean's Thirteen, alongside George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Andy Garcia.

Also scheduled for release is Rififi, a remake of the 1955 French original based on the novel by Auguste Le Breton. Pacino plays a career thief just out of prison who finds his wife has left him and so in his anger starts planning a heist.

On October 20, 2006, the American Film Institute announced that Pacino would be the recipient of the 35th AFI Life Achievement Award.
