Sean Penn to Star in "Prone Gunman," His First Action Film

Posted: January 29th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sean Penn to Star in "Prone Gunman," His First Action FilmSubmit Comment
French director Pierre Morel, who turned Liam Neeson into an action star in "Taken", is in talks with Penn to direct the actor in his first action movie, called "Prone Gunman," based on a novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette.

The story centers on an international operative named Martin Terrier (Penn) who is betrayed by the organization he works for and must go on the run in a relentless game of cat-and-mouse across Europe.

The script is written by Peter Travis and the plan is to begin filming in the spring in several locations across Europe.

You're no Liam Neeson Mr. Penn.

I want him to play the coked out Jew lawyer from Carlito's Way again. He was good at that.

@Taco. He wasn't really the star of that, but he was dipping his toes in the water.

You'll have to get someone to explain the script to him, Mr. Manchette, he's a little slow with comprehension.

@Avirex

Ya he's been in movies that have had his character do some action, but the vast majority of the films he was doing drama. I think they mean this is the first time he is playing a character that is by all means action first. I'd liken it to matt damon being in courage under fire (some action, mostly drama ( and then starring in the bourne identity

Id love to see what penn can do with an action role. He is one of the best actors of his generation. Suberb dramatic actor. Great comedy actor as well when he chooses to (spicoli anyone?)

Zak Penn, Chris Penn and Sean Penn should get together and write a movie just so I can FINALLY say "Penned by Chris Penn, Zak Penn and Sean Penn", thus fulfilling one of my life-long dreams.
