Sean Penn about to act in ‘This Must Be The Place’

HollywoodNews.com: Sean Penn will star in “This Must Be The Place,” a $28 million English-language film by Italian director Paolo Sorrentino.

The production goes before the cameras on August 16 and also stars another Oscar-winner, in addition to Penn, Frances McDormand.

Per Screen Daily, production will last 10-weeks in Dublin, Ireland and U.S. locales Michigan, New Mexico and New York.

Prior to “This Must Be The Place,” the last Italian film to tout a lofty budget was Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Baaria” which cost $30-35m via Medusa film. That film never saw a domestic release.

“This Must Be The Place” follows an aging rock star who pursues the Nazi criminal who took his father’s life in a concentration camp.

Penn and Sorrentino became friends during the actor’s stint as president of the Cannes jury in 2008. It was then that the festival awarded Sorrentino the Prix du Jury for “Il Divo.”
