Posted on 05/21/2009 10:44:01 AM PDT by nickcarraway
Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn has agreed to take on the starring role in a film about a retired musician who sets out to find his father's Nazi executioner, according to media reports.
Penn is to play an ageing wealthy rocker who grows bored of his retirement and goes on a quest to find his father's killer, an ex-Nazi war criminal taking refuge in the U.S.
The screenplay of "This Must Be the Place" was co-written by Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello, and marks Italian director Paolo Sorrentino's English-language feature debut.
Penn will take on the new role once he has completed filming for his current three projects - "The Three Stooges", "Cartel" and "Fair Game".
Penn took home his second Best Actor Oscar last year after starring in the title role of "Milk", as San Francisco's first openly gay Jewish councilman.

Sean Penn is a a major POS, and that’s being nice about it
Whose best friend was a talking pie.
(Sorry for the Homer Simpson reference.)
Oh goody - more Hollywood high concept.
This thing sounds as credible as Dirk Diggler’s bio vignette.
Penn will take on the new role once he has completed filming for his current three projects - “The Three Stooges”, “Cartel” and “Fair Game”.
He’s doing films about Obama, Reid and pelosi, His Administration and America?
It’s interesting. No one seems to give a hoot about hunting down major Soviet and Red Chinese war criminals who slaughtered millions more people in their gulags than the Nazis ever did in their concentration camps.
Really, just how many MAJOR Nazi war criminals could still be alive today?
Freaking Hollyweird BS as usual. And Penn.............
Since it’s Penn, I think we know the climax of the movie: He confronts his father’s killer after a long emotional journey only to awaken to his compassionate, liberal inner self and instead of taking an eye for an eye, has a nice talk with the murderer and becomes friends.
Wait, let me put my life on hold for this.
Just more junk on the screen from Hollyweird.
Penn will take on the new role once he has completed filming for his current three projects - "The Three Stooges",
Which of the Stooges will he play? Iggy? Ron? Or Scott?
Why dont he stay in Hollywood and do a Commie Hunting movie.
LOL, that is right on!!!, I FEEL YOU PAIN!
Well there’s a list of movies I will never see...
Every time I think some stupid actor must be the stupidest person in Hollywood, I remember Sean, and realize nobody even comes close. There are a lot of idiots in Hollywood, but Penn is their king.
Penn took home his second Best Actor Oscar last year after starring in the title role of "Milk", as San Francisco's first openly gay Jewish councilman.Just because everyone here already knows is no reason not to mention that Harvey Milk wasn't killed because he was Jewish, or because he was gay.
