What's Wrong With Virginia: One of Dustin Lance Black's next projects after winning the Oscar for penning the Milk screenplay will be directing Liam Neeson and Jennifer Connelly in What's Wrong With Virginia, which Black also wrote. In the film, "Connelly will play the charming but psychologically disturbed mother of a 16-year-old son. Her 20-year clandestine love with a sheriff (Neeson), who is running for the state senate, is tested when her son begins a relationship with his daughter."
This Must Be the Place: Speaking of Milk, Oscar-winner Sean Penn is in talks to star in Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino's first English-language feature film, This Must Be the Place. If finalized, Penn will play "a wealthy rock star who becomes bored in his retirement and takes on the quest of finding his father's executioner, an ex-Nazi war criminal who is a refugee in the US."
