Will Fetters-written Crazy for the Storm may land Sean Penn as director
Penn is in talks to take the wheel for the first time in five years after the incredible Into the Wild, directing the adaptation of Norman Ollestad's memoir, reports Variety.
Adapted by Fetters, the story tells of the relationship between Ollestad and his father and how the skills he learned from his father aided him in surviving a plane crash, which left him stranded on a mountaintop.
Although Penn is helming, he will not be starring in the Warner Bros. Pictures' drama produced by Gerber Pictures' Bill Gerber as well as Rob Weisbach and Fonda Snyder.
Several directors were considered for this by Warners, including talented Alfonso Cuaron, but Warners had been trying to land Penn for the project for some time.
