Far too esteemed for Jerry Bruckheimer and not experienced enough for The Expendables, Sean Penn will have his first foray into action handled by Pierre Morel -- the same guy who turned Liam Neeson into a doughy badass with Taken. In the film Prone Gunman, Penn will play a spy running around Europe and killing various bad guys after his own organization double-crosses him.

Shooting is expected to begin in the spring, so Internet sketch comedy teams have ample time to prepare their parodies starring Penn's character from I Am Sam.
