Brolin set for Penn's Storm movie

Josh Brolin looks set to star in a new survival drama directed by Sean Penn.

The Men In Black 3 actor is currently in talks about taking a role in Crazy For The Storm, reported Variety.

The film will be based on the memoirs of Norman Ollestad, who was brought up by his sports fanatic father, but resented being taught the activities his father loved. However, the skills his father instilled in him helped him survive after he was the sole survivor of a plane crash when he was 11.

Josh is tipped to play Ollestad's dad.

Sean is set to direct, although Variety states that both Josh and Sean's deals still "need to be worked out".

Oscar-winner Sean made his directorial debut with The Indian Runner in 1991 and was last at the helm of the critically acclaimed Into The Wild in 2007.
