CARACAS, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said he met privately with actor Sean Penn on Wednesday, and that the Oscar-winning celebrity may film a movie in Venezuela.
Penn may shoot a film based on a novel by Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier, which is set largely in the jungle along Venezuela's southern Orinoco river, Chavez said. He appeared to be referring to Carpentier's 1953 novel, "The Lost Steps," about an American anthropologist and composer's journey into the jungle region.
Penn's publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.
Chavez added that he discussed politics with Penn, who said he would soon see U.S. President Barack Obama. Chavez said he'd asked Penn to tell Obama he should take action to earn his Nobel Peace Prize, and should scrap a plan for the U.S. military to increase its presence at bases in Colombia.

maybe they’ll keep him!
How about naming it “The Lost Mind”
I wonder how Penn like his 3-minute cold showers?
Too bad I don’t go to the cinema much anymore since most of it’s dreck, otherwise, I could boycott this movie! Hey, maybe I’ll just say I’m boycotting it, even though I wasn’t planning on seeing it anyway :)
