Sean Penn Thinks This “Must Be the Place”

Sean Penn is in talks to star in Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino’s “This Must Be the Place” for Indigo Film and Lucky Red says Variety.

Penn would play a wealthy rock star who becomes bored in his retirement and takes on the quest of finding his father’s executioner, an ex-Nazi war criminal who is a refugee in the U.S.

Co-written by Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello, the project would be the “Il Divo” helmer’s English-language feature debut.

No word on production yet but Penn’s commitments to MGM’s “The Three Stooges” and the Valerie Plame drama “Fair Game” which is currently shooting.
