Josh Brolin Swept Up By Penn’s “Storm”

Josh Brolin is in talks to star in the Sean Penn-directed “Crazy for the Storm” at Warner Bros. Pictures says Variety.

Based on Norman Ollestad’s memoir, the story details his relationship with his father and how the skills his father (Brolin) instilled in him helped him survive after a plane crash stranded him on a mountaintop when he was just 11 years old.

Will Fetters penned the script while Bill Gerber, Fonda Snyder and Rob Weisbach will produce. Shooting aims to kick off in the first quarter of 2013 once Brolin wraps work on Spike Lee’s “Oldboy” remake later this fall.
