Two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn (Milk, Mystic River) will direct Flag Day, in which he will star alongside his daughter Dylan Penn (Condemned, Elvis & Nixon). Principal photography began this week.
Also joining the cast are Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, Milk, The Avengers franchise), two-time Tony Award® winner Norbert Leo Butz (“Fosse/Verdon”, Fair Game), Dale Dickey (Hell or High Water, The Pledge), Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky, 21 Grams), Bailey Noble (“True Blood”), Hopper Penn (War Machine), Miles Teller (Whiplash, Too Old To Die Young), and Katheryn Winnick (“Vikings”, The Dark Tower). Tony Award winning playwright Jez Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow, Black Mass, Broadway’s The Ferryman) penned the screenplay, which is based on Jennifer Vogel’s 2005 memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life.
Based on a true story, Flag Day is an illuminating portrait of a daughter struggling to overcome the loving yet dark legacy of her con man father.
