Newcomer finds ‘Place’ opposite Penn

Eve Hewson to co-star in indie drama

Newcomer Eve Hewson has landed a co-starring role opposite Sean Penn in the Paolo Sorrentino-helmed indie “This Must Be the Place.”

Story centers on an aging rock star (Penn) who becomes fixated on pursuing the Nazi criminal who tormented his father in a concentration camp. Hewson will play a gothic-punk music fan who is close friends with Penn’s character.

Frances McDormand also co-stars.

Indigo Film’s Nicola Giuliano and Lucky Red’s Andrea Occhipinti are producing the film, which was penned by Sorrentino and Umberto Contarello.

ARP Selection and the Ireland-based Element Film are co-producing, Medusa and Banca Intesa are co-financing and Pathe is on board as the world sales company. The film will begin lensing in Ireland and the United States this month.

Hewson most recently starred in the indie drama “The 27 Club.”

She is repped by UTA.
