Sean Penn will direct and star alongside his daughter Dylan Penn in upcoming film Flag Day.
The film will also star Katheryn Winnick, Josh Brolin, Norbert Leo Butz, Dale Dickey, Eddie Marsan, Bailey Noble, Hopper Penn, and Miles Teller.
Flag Day is an illuminating portrait of a daughter struggling to overcome the loving yet dark legacy of her con-man father. The project is based on Jennifer Vogel’s 2005 memoir “Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life”.
Rocket Science and Wild Bunch are executive producing and handling international sales, with CAA Media Finance, which arranged financing for the film, representing the U.S. and China rights. Principal photography began this week.
