    February 2, 2006


    Paramount's specialty division has signed Sean Penn to direct Alaska adventure Into the Wild with Emile Hirsch (The Lords of Dogtown) to star, reports Variety.

    The project is based on Penn's adaptation of Jon Krakauer's bestseller. Producing are Art Linson and Bill Pohlad, an executive producer on Brokeback Mountain. Pohlad will co-finance the project.

    Hirsch will portray Christopher McCandless, who graduated from college in 1992, abandoned his possessions and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness and return to nature. He died four months later in an abandoned bus at a remote campsite.

    The feature directing gig is the first for Penn since 2001's The Pledge. He last appeared in The Interpreter and stars next in Sony's All The King's Men.

    Hirsch will be seen next in Sony Classics' Imaginary Heroes and New Line's Alpha Dog.

    I saw the title and I was thinking Sean Penn's TOO OLD for that role! :lol: Glad to see he's not starring.

    I have goosebumps. It was such a great book and an amazing story. I hope they do it justice.

      'Wild' times for Keener, Vaughn, Par


      Catherine Keener

      By Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit

      Catherine Keener and Vince Vaughn are taking a walk on the "Wild" side. The two have boarded the Sean Penn-helmed "Into the Wild," which Paramount Pictures' new specialty division is distributing.

      Emile Hirsch already has signed on to star in the film, which chronicles the true story of Christopher McCandless, who graduated from college in 1992, abandoned his possessions and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness and return to nature. He died four months later in an abandoned bus at a remote campsite. Penn adapted the screenplay from Jon Krakauer's book of the same name.

      Keener's character picks up the hitchhiker and takes him in as a surrogate son. Vaughn plays a tow-truck driver whom Hirsch's character meets on the road.

        The Hollywood Reporter

        Writer-director Sean Penn continues to lure a stellar cast "Into the Wild."

        Oscar winners William Hurt and Marcia Gay Harden have signed on to co-star in the film, which will be distributed by Paramount Vantage. Emile Hirsch, Vince Vaughn and Catherine Keener already have boarded the project.

        Based on Jon Krakauer's non-fiction book, the story centers on Christopher McCandless (Hirsch), who graduated from college in 1992, abandoned his possessions and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness and return to nature. He died four months later in an abandoned bus at a remote campsite. Hurt and Harden will play McCandless' parents.
