Continuing his post-Oscar, postseparation acting windfall, Penn is in talks to star in This Must Be the Place, according to Variety.
Not one to fall prey to typecasting, this time around Penn plays a wealthy and increasingly bored, retired rock star who decides to set out to find the Nazi war criminal responsible for executing his father.
The not-so-feel-good film marks the English-language debut of Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, who also penned the script.
