Reuniting with his screenplay collaborator on the short film La partita lenta, Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello will tell the tale of an aging rock star who is obsessed with finding a Nazi criminal who tortured his father in a concentration camp.

So far we have Sean Penn as the rock star, with Frances McDormand signed up to play his wife. According to Variety a new name has been added to the cast list, that of Eve Hewson, who is to play a ‘gothic-punk music fan’ who befriends Penn’s character.

This will be Hewson’s biggest role so far and appearing with actors of the calibre of Penn and McDormand is a great step for this young actress. Big things expected from Bono’s daughter,  we’ll keep an eye out.
