So, have doubts about Sean Penn's versatility? Next month you'll see him on screen as the damaged, fragile, Robert Smith-esque goth rocker in "This Must Be The Place." Then in January, he'll be snarling and scenery chewing his way through "Gangster Squad."

This Must Be The Place

So, have doubts about Sean Penn's versatility? Next month you'll see him on screen as the damaged, fragile, Robert Smith-esque goth rocker in "This Must Be The Place." Then in January, he'll be snarling and scenery chewing his way through "Gangster Squad." 

A few more images and a poster have landed for the first movie, which is finally hitting screens after premiering at Cannes way back in 2011. Those were the days. The film finds Penn playing a cloistered celeb musician who goes on a journey to find the man who haunted his recently deceased father, who was a survivor of the Holocaust. The result is a movie that's part road trip, part comedy, part drama, all wig-tacular. The soundtrack boasts some interesting folks including Wlil Oldham, Iggy Pop, Jonsi and David Byrne, who also makes a cameo in the movie.

"This Must Be The Place" arrives on November 2nd. Guyliner not included.
