According to Variety, Sean Penn is currently circling This Must Be the Place.
The film makes the first English-language feature from Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino.
Penn is slated to play rock star who, bored with retirement, sets about finding the man who killed his father. The killer just happens to be an ex-Nazi war criminal who is hiding in the U.S.
Sorrentino co-wrote the screenplay with Umberto Contarello.
Apparently, Penn and Sorrentino have both committed to working with one another on this project.
