The unnamed film is unlikely to be Penn’s long-gestating “The Comedian,” last reported to star Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig. This new drama will film this summer in South Africa, and will revolve around the refugee camps in Sudan and Liberia.
Exarchopoulos was one of our Breakout Stars of 2013 because of her title role as a fictional teenager also named Adele in Abdellatif Kechiche’s “Blue is the Warmest Color” (or “The Life of Adele” in its original French). She’s since completed two more French language films, “Voyage vers la mère” and “Qui vive.” In addition to Penn’s film, she’s also attached to “M” for director Sara Forestier, which will shoot afterwards.
OK I know it's Sean Penn, but she should still get those roles/awards/money/exposure IMO!!!! Hollywood needs to bow down~
