Newbie Eve Hewson has been cast is a leading role opposite Sean Penn in the indie This Must Be the Place, which is being directed by Italian helmer Paolo Sorrentino, according to Variety. Hewson, who most recently starred in another indie drama, The 27 Club, is set to portray a gothic-punk music fan who is close with Penn’s character, an aging rock star “who becomes fixated on pursuing the Nazi criminal who tormented his father in a concentration camp.” Frances McDormand is also set to star.
