[Movies] Sean Penn To Star In Action Film Prone Gunman
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.13.2012



Sean Penn will now star in what could become his very own action movie franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He is in talks for Prone Gunman, an action thriller being produced by Silver Pictures' Joel Silver and Andrew Rona.

The film's script, written by Peter Travis, is based on a Jean-Patrick Manchette novel. It focuses on an international operative named Martin Terrier (Penn), who is betrayed by the organization he works for and must go on the run in Europe.

It's not just a typical Hollywood role for Penn, however. Manchette was a leftist French author. His books in the French noir genre have been called existentialist and involve politics and the human condition. The film is being financed by StudioCanal and a director is being searched for.

Penn is the latest actor over 50 to take on an action film after Liam Neeson (Taken), Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Red 2) and the cast of The Expendables. Silver Pictures is producing another one of these films with Neeson, called Non-Stop. That will also be financed by StudioCanal.

Penn can next be seen in Warner Bros Gangster Squad on January 11 as gangster Mickey Cohen.
