Penn Goes Scouting

Norm Clarke chronicles a twist of irony that is almost too funny to be true:
Sean Penn was on a scouting expedition this week when he roamed the area around Boulder City with film executives.

They checked out the Hacienda hotel-casino on Monday and outdoor options around Lake Mead, sources said.

"They're making a movie that would start in late June or early July," a spy said. "We were told they mentioned river rafting."
What Norm fails to mention in the article is whether or not Sean brought his infamous red plastic cup.

Hey guys!  I think we've got blockbuster material here!

Penn will be directing a film adaptation of Jon Krakauer's, "Into the Wild."
The book chronicles the fatal altruistic journey of Christopher McCandless, who rejected his upper middle class existence for a nomadic test of character -- some said death wish -- that ended in the wilds of Alaska.
Perhaps Penn will get so into the character that he too will throw away his possessions and take a far away journey, never to be heard from again.

Or is that just wishful thinking?
