Sean Penn stops traffic with London film shoot

Hollywood star Sean Penn stopped traffic in London over the weekend (07-08Sep13) as he filmed scenes for new movie The Gunman. The actor spent Sunday (08Sep13) shooting footage for the upcoming thriller on the famed Tower Bridge as a low-flying helicopter zoomed overhead and passers-by crowded round to watch.
Penn stars as Martin Terrier, an international spy trying to clear his name so he can retire to be with his longtime love.
The Gunman, which also stars Idris Elba, Javier Bardem and Ray Winstone, is due in cinemas next year (14).
