Sean Penn Is “Crazy for the Storm”

Sean Penn is slipping back into the director’s chair for “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 instilled in him helped him survive after a plane crash stranded him on a mountaintop.

Penn will only direct, not star, from a script by Will Fetters. Bill Gerber, Fonda Snyder and Rob Weisbach will produce.

The project marks Penn’s first directorial effort since another survival drama, 2007’s “Into the Wild”.
