Well, it didn't take long for details about Sean Penn's next directorial effort to come together, and he's lining up a killer cast. With Adele Exarchapoulos and Charlize Theron lining up roles in the past couple days, one more puzzle piece has been sorted out.

Javier Bardem has been added to the film, now apparently called "The Last Face" not "The Last Space," with the Erin Dignam penned script following "a talented and charismatic doctor (Bardem) who is forced to choose between his love for an American relief worker (Theron) or his dedication to saving lives in war-torn African nations." The "Blue Is The Warmest Color" star will play a journalist and this all sounds Very Important, but that cast is pretty undeniable. The production will film in Africa this summer. [Variety]

Adrien Brody has joined Salma Hayek and Shohreh Aghdashloo in the adaptation of Dalia Sofer's "The Septembers Of Shiraz." Wayne Blair, last behind the camera for "The Sapphires," will direct this "true story of a secular Jewish family caught in the Islamic revolution in Iran, and their journey to overcome and ultimately escape from the deadly tyranny that swept their country and threatened to extinguish their lives at every turn." [Deadline]

Speaking of Salma Hayek, she's boarded the animated "Sausage Party." From the filthy minds of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, she joins the already extensive voice cast (Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, Edward Norton, and David Krumholtz) in this story of a sausage who falls out of a shopping cart and must make it back to the store shelf in time for the Fourth of July sale. Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan direct the film that will drop next year. [Deadline

Lastly, Terrence Howard has joined the Vince Vaughn thriller "Term Life." The movie follows an ex-con who is wanted dead, who takes out a life insurance policy to care for his daughter, only to learn it doesn't take effect for 21 days. Hailee Steinfeld co-stars. [Deadline]

    Robin Wright still burning Penn's heart. Charlize you're a toll for his revenge anger. See the Pagesix article signed by Richard Johnson for details.

    Oh, my God! Mr. Penn is desperate to get attention from his ex Robin Wright. First is paired with a woman who has a hairstyle identical to Robin and is now going to direct a project that brought the memory lane to hurt your ex? I do not know what will come out of this but one thing is for sure, it is not only written by Erin Dignam by history, it is necessary that she take the lead in the direction that this story has the effect it should have. And unfortunately for Erin to favorite Penn away from this project and be loyal to his good friend Robin Wright, so "Bravo, by Mrs. Dignam!."
