Sean Penn's 'This Must Be the Place' finds a place at Weinstein

Prepare yourself, Oscar: The Weinstein Company has acquired rights to Sean Penn’s This Must Be the Place. The film — most well-known for featuring a Robert Smith-esque Penn — follows a faded rock star who searches for a former Nazi who once did his father wrong. (Some audiences already saw the film at Cannes.) The release date for the film, directed by Paolo Sorrentino, is not yet known. “Sorrentino is a true auteur,” Harvey Weinstein said in a press release, “We were gripped by his film and are excited to share it with American audiences. Sean proves once again that he is one of the finest actors of our time.”

    I wish Sean Penn would do more movies. We see too little of him.

      I agree! He’s fascinating to watch on screen!!

    I don’t know about this. No one seemed to care for this film out of Cannes. Why would Harvey bother? Why not just devote more money to The Iron Lady or The Artist?

    I saw the movie at a press event. Good with a fantastic performance by Sheen. Sure hope the academy has the guts to reward him because its not typical Oscars stuff.
