Sean Penn To Direct ‘The Comedian’


Sean Penn is set to direct a new film starring Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig. Penn will direct The Comedian, which is set to begin production next spring and was written by Art Linson and Jeffrey Ross.

The film is about Jackie Burke (De Niro), a washed-up comedian who desperately tries to reignite his career. Sentenced to community service after battering a heckler with a microphone, the comedian meets Harmony (Wiig), a fiery young redhead who turns his life upside down.
