Hi, what are you looking for?



According to THR, Sean Penn is set to direct Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig in the The Comedian.

The story will follow Jackie Burke (De Niro), a raging comic who’s past his prime and wants to reclaim the fame he once had when he played a popular TV character. After he’s sentenced to community service for hitting an audience member in the head with a microphone, he meets Harmony, a dazzling redhead (Wiig) who turns his life sideways.

The Comedian was written by Art Linson (What Just Happened) and Jeffrey Ross. It’s being produced by Linson, John Linson, Jon Kilik, and De Niro.

Penn is currently shooting Gangster Squad, he was last seen on screen this past summer in Terence Malick’s Tree of Life.

Kristen Wiig was in the mega-hit Bridesmaids (which she also co-wrote) this past summer and will next be seen in Revenge for Jolly and Imogene which are both in post-production.

De Niro was last seen in the action film Killer Elite opposite Jason Statham and Clive Owen… He will next be seen in New Year’s Eve.

This is good news, I always find Penn’s directing style unique.
