Sean Penn is currently on location in Dublin filming his latest project, This Must Be the Place.
Shooting on the indie for Indigo Films began on August 16th and will continue for the next few weeks and the American actor was spotted wearing a long, messy wig and a bright red lipstick.
Cheyenne, a wealthy former rock star (Penn), now bored and jaded in his retirement embarks on a quest to find his father’s persecutor, an ex-Nazi war criminal now hiding out in the U.S. Learning his father is close to death, he travels to New York in the hope of being reconciled with him during his final hours, only to arrive too late.
Having been estranged for over 30 years, it is only now in death that he learns the true extent of his father’s humiliation in Auschwitz at the hands of former SS Officer Aloise Muller – an event he is determined to avenge. So begins a life-altering journey across the heartland of America to track down and confront his father’s nemesis. As his quest unfolds, Cheyenne is reawakened by the people he encounters and his journey is transformed into one of reconciliation and self discovery. As his date with destiny arrives and he tracks down Muller, Cheyenne must finally decide if it is redemption he seeks ….or revenge.
The movie is written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo) and co-stars Frances McDormand, Shea Whigham and Harry Dean Stanton. Bono’s (U2) daughter, actress Eve Hewson, is among the cast, playing a music fan who befriends Penn’s character.
This Must Be the Place is scheduled to be released sometime in 2011.
