Sean Penn to Direct 'The Comedian'

Sean Penn to Direct 'The Comedian' with Robert De Niro & Kristen Wiig

Aside form his turns in comedies like Meet the Parents and Analyze This, back in 1983, Robert De Niro actually portrayed a comedian in Martin Scorsese's film The King of Comedy. Now the actor is taking another role as a comic with Deadline having a report on The Comedian, just one of many projects that will emerge from next week's American Film Market. Actor Sean Penn is returning to the director's chair and De Niro will play, Jackie Burke, a raging comic past his prime who clings to any recognition that comes from his days as a beloved TV character as he desperately attempts to reignite his stagnant career.
