This Must Be The Place – Sean Penn scares Dublin

Just what exactly was Sean Penn up to when he closed off parts of Dublin recently? From the look of the pictures below he was scaring the bejeezus out of the locals. Dressed in drag Penn was filming his part in Il Divo director Paolo Sorrentino’s new film This Must Be The Place.

Penn plays an ageing rock-star who is obsessed with finding a Nazi criminal who tortured his father in a concentration camp. Cheery stuff. Frances McDormand is also on-board playing Penn’s wife, with Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson, playing a ‘gothic-punk music fan’ who befriends Penn’s character.

A strange sounding film indeed, and kind of disturbing from these pictures. It will be interesting to see what comes of it. The movie is due out sometime next year.

Thanks to HeyUGuys for the heads-up.
