Penn finds a Place with Sorrentino

Sean Penn will join Il Divo director Paolo Sorrentino on his English language debut, This Must Be The Place .

Their collaboration has Cannes written through it like the proverbial stick of Blackpool rock - the pair first met at 2008's festival, when Penn headed the jury and Sorrentino was competing with Il Divo .

Two years later, their first tag team effort is set to be introduced to buyers on the Croisette.

"I'd seen Il Divo ," Penn commented, "and told him to please count me among the actors who would love to work with him."

The film, which will shoot in Dublin and the US, follows a disturbed musician who sets out to find the man who killed his father.
