Penn, Willis join De Niro in ‘What’

Levinson comedy's cast fills out

Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro and Kristen Stewart have joined Robert De Niro in “What Just Happened?,” the Barry Levinson-directed comedy that will be funded by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban’s 2929 Productions.

Shooting begins March 22. De Niro and his Tribeca Productions partner Jane Rosenthal will produce with Art Linson.

Linson, the veteran Hollywood producer, wrote a screenplay that was inspired by his memoir. In the fictional film, De Niro plays a desperate movie producer trying to preserve some dignity as his soul is slowly destroyed by the machinations of Hollywood and the breakup of his second marriage.

Pic will be exec produced by 2929’s Wagner, Cuban and Marc Butan, with Eric Kopeloff. Worldwide distribution rights belong to 2929, and 2929 International is handling overseas sales on the film.
