Sean Penn is one of just a handful of actors who have the ability to completely transform to fit their screen personas. He famously became gay activist Harvey Milk for the lead role in 'Milk,' which won him the Oscar for Best Actor in 2009; and the grieving father in another Oscar-winning performance for 'Mystic River.' Now, he's taking on another transformative role in 'This Must Be the Place,' where he portrays a busted, run-down musician with big hair and tons of makeup. Yes, Sean Penn is portraying Cher...

The synopsis for 'This Must Be the Place' promises a disaster. The recently released trailer promises a disaster of epic proportions. So, naturally, it looks like an absolute must-watch.
Josh Brolin and Sean Penn have been working together often recently. Both appeared in 2008's 'Milk' and will be in next year's 'Gangster Squad.' Now it appears the duo will work together again, though with Penn directing Brolin in his adaptation of 'Crazy for the Storm.'
Sean Penn is in talks to helm 'Crazy for the Storm' for Warner Brothers, which is based on the memoirs by Norman Ollestad, which tells Ollestad's true story of being the sole survivor of a plane crash.
See all those cool cats up there? They're just chillin', waiting for the new international trailer to be released for their upcoming movie 'Gangster Squad.' Looks like they can finally stop hanging out at the park and go watch that new trailer that was just released today.
Though it might still be missing a release date, Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad' now has a trailer, which features Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling chasing Sean Penn's Mickey Cohen through Los Angeles. It's more than likely this will be attached to 'Dark Shadows' this weekend, but if you don't want to wait, the trailer's here.
We haven't seen much of Sean Penn since he appeared in Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life' last year, but now word comes down that he is doing, of all things, a comedy. The intense (see above), Oscar-winning actor is joining Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig and Patton Oswalt in 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.'
It's hard to know what to make of Warner Brothers fiddling with their schedule right now. But they've just moved 'Argo' - which stars and was directed by Ben Affleck - from its September 14 release date to October 12. Meanwhile 'Gangster Squad,' the Ruben Fleischer-directed gangster films with Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin, got moved off the October date and is now unscheduled.
