Sean Penn is an aged rocker in photo from This Must Be The Place
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
A new photo has been released for the film THIS MUST BE THE PLACE and Sean Penn looks like a strung-out rock star. The film follows an aged rocker (Penn) who becomes obsessed with tracking down the Nazi who tortured his father during WWII. The film is directed Paolo Sorrentino and also stars Harry Dean Stanton, Frances McDormand, Kerry Condon, Judd Hirsch and Eve Hewson (who is the daughter of Bono). Does that sound ridiculously interesting to anyone else? I personally can’t wait to see Penn as a rock star, he looks pretty convincing. The drama THIS MUST BE THE PLACE comes out sometime this year.
I know this film is supposed to be a serious drama or thriller, but seeing Sean Penn like this makes me chuckle. For such a serious topic that just feels wrong. If you like a more serious Sean Penn, you can check out his upcoming film THE TREE OF LIFE in which he shares the screen with Brad Pitt and hits theaters on May 27, 2011.
