Producers of Paolo Sorrentino’s latest project ‘This Must be the Place’ are currently scouting locations in Ireland with a view to possibly filming the project here this summer. The Indigo Film’s production is rumoured to star Oscar winning actor Sean Penn (Milk).

‘This Must be the Place’ tells the story of a former rock star who decides to track down his father’s killer, an ex-Naxi. Speaking to IFTN, Indigo Films confirmed the film will mark the English language directorial debut of Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, Le Conseguenze dell’Amore) who wrote the film’s screenplay alongside Umberto Contarello (La Partita Lenta, Luce dei Miei Occhi). Sorrentino picked up the Cannes Jury Prize in 2008 for his widely acclaimed feature ‘Il Divo’.

Other actors linked to the drama include Irish actor Tom Archdeacon (Dicks) and Italian golden globe winner, Toni Servillo (Gomorrah).

‘This Must be the Place’ will be produced by Indigo Film’s founders Francesca Cima (Il Divo) and Nicola Giuliano (Le Coinseguenze dell’Amore) and Lucky Red’s Andrea Occhipinti (The White Ribbon). A spokesperson for the Irish Film Board said the IFB had not confirmed the project for Ireland to date, but were aware producers are scouting locations here. Additional scenes for the film are likely to film in the US.
