Harvey Milk film to start shooting, you should pardon the expression

The Sean Penn film about the career and assassination of Harvey Milk — which earlier advertised for extras who could pass for 1970s residents of the Castro — will start shooting this week — or “lensing,” to use the Daily Variety term.

Penn will play the martyred city supervisor, and Josh Brolin — not Matt Damon as previously reported — will play the assassin Dan White. Curiously, Brolin is also up for the title role in an Oliver Stone film about George Bush.

SFist had a report earlier today on the production.
