Sean Penn is currently closing the deal to star in
This Must Be the Place, the English-language film debut of famed Italian director
Paolo Sorrentino. In the film, the Oscar-winning
Penn would play an ultra-successful rock star who is bored during retirement and embarks on a quest to find the man who
executed his father. The executioner happens to be an ex-Nazi war criminal living in the United States. Sorrentino co-wrote the script.
Sources have indicated that Penn and Sorrentino have made the verbal commitment to work together once Penn's busy schedule frees up. Sorrentino is currently seeking financing for the film.
