Sean Penn’s Cannes film “Fair Game” gets help from ex-spy

By Staff

It’s nice to have friends that are in the CIA, err…were in the CIA.

Sean Penn’s political film “Fair Game” about the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame during the George W. Bush administration will get some tubthumping by Plame herself at the Cannes Film Festival next month per Page Six.

In the film, Plame is portrayed by Naomi Watts. While doing PR for the film last week at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the ex-CIA agent exclaimed that Penn’s portrayal of her husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, impressed her when he “flew in on Southwest Airlines and spent three days following my husband, even wearing the same cologne.”

Plame was identified as a CIA agent after Wilson claimed in a New York Times op-ed piece that there were was no clear evidence in Saddam Hussein possessing weapons of mass destruction.

The Los Angeles Times is already buzzing that Summit Entertainement, the distributor of Oscar winner “The Hurt Locker,” is the lead contender for North American rights to the film; since it’s already selling overseas rights at the Cannes Film Festival market.

    This film is about Valerie Plame played by Naomi Watts, and her husband Joseph Wilson played by Sean Penn. The story is based on Valerie Plame’s own book of the same name in which Valerie Plame is the main character, so is Watts the central character of the film.
