Academy-Award winner Sean Penn has dabbled with a plethora of different roles throughout the course of his career. In the upcoming Warner Bros. film, "Gangster Squad", set to release in AMC Theatres on January 11th 2013, he plays legendary mob leader Mickey Cohen. Based off recent news of his next potential film endeavor, Penn may be choosing to stay in the world of crime and killers for a while longer. 

Currently in negotiations, Penn is looking to star in the new action-thriller, "Prone Gunman". Based on Jean-Patrick Manchette's novel, "Prone Gunman" is a political French noir tale that explores the life of a hired killer named Martin Terrier. Terrier is betrayed by the organization he works for and therefore must embark on a violent game of cat-and-mouse in a chase around Europe.

The film is being produced by Silver Pictures' Joel Silver and Andrew Rona and financed by StudioCanal. The project is positioned to become a new action franchise and currently has no Director signed on to helm.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
