A Collaboration in the Works for Charlize Theron

The Last Face takes place in Sudan and Liberia and tells the story of two doctors (Theron and Bardem) doing humanitarian work to try to save victims of tribal warfare. As if there weren’t enough conflict already, Bardem’s character is forced to choose between his love for Theron’s character and his dedication to his work.

Years ago House of Cards star Robin Wright tried to develop a script for a 1990s love story set in an African refugee camp; however, she and writer/director Erin Dignam could never get it financed so, sadly, it fell to the wayside. Until now.

53-year old actor, director, and ex-husband of Wright, Sean Penn, has been asked to direct The Last Facewhich will star Javier Bardem and Penn’s almost-fiancée Charlize Theron.

“This is obviously a vindictive move against his ex-wife, for whom ‘The Last Face’ was a labor of love.”

The revamp of the project came about when Erin Dignam sold it to Matt Palmieri, who asked Penn to direct.

“I hope Theron knows she’s being played by Penn as a childish revenge tool against Robin Wright,”.

Theron and Penn made their relationship public in January and since then have been seen together at Penn’s Help Haiti Home gala, during a holiday trip to Penn’s beachfront home in Hawaii, and on Valentine’s Day in Cabo San Lucas.

“They were inseparable,” an eyewitness said about the couple in Mexico. “They held hands everywhere they went.”

38-year old Theron has an adopted son, Jackson. Penn has two children with Wright, ages 18 and 23 reports E News.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
