Hollywood star Sean Penn is reportedly set to star alongside his ex-wife Madonna in a new movie project.

The I Am Sam actor, who was wed to the SWEPT AWAY star for four years in the mid 1980s, is said to be very keen to get a role in the film entitled MADONNA AND CHILD.

Although the pair's latest screen outing SHANGHAI SURPRISE was a critical flop, Penn thinks they would sizzle on screen together.

A source tells British tabloid The Sun, "Sean's very serious about a reunion with Madonna. The idea just came to him. He thinks the electricity between them on screen would be tremendous."

Madonna and Child is a tale of a middle-aged star who dreams of recapturing her success. If negations go ahead the pair could be filming together in early 2004.

Both Madonna and Penn have both married again since their divorce, to GUY RITCHIE and Robin Wright respectively.
