Peacekeeping Penn: Exarchapoulos & Theron Tapped for “The Last Space”

We found out this morning (via ThePlaylist folks) that Sean Penn (the filmmaker) was among the curious Blue Is the Warmest Color onlookers and proving that a Palme d’Or win can pay out huge dividends (it was a major showcase for it’s lead actress Adèle Exarchapoulos) we now learn that (thanks to TheWrap), Charlize Theron will also board The Last Space which might be something close to his humanitarian heart. Lensing is expected to begin in July.

Gist: This is based on the Liberian and Sudanese conflict and unfolds in refuge camps.

Worth Noting: Exarchapoulos got her debut in Matthew Porterfield’s I Used to Be Darker.

Do We Care?: We became fans of the filmmaker with his meditative Into the Wild and knowing very little here: we feel that this might hit the right notes or make us want to pull our hair out.
