Local newspaper reports that during his stay in Turkey, the 'Milk' star is also expected to pay a visit to Hatice Cengiz, the fiance of Jamal Khashoggi who was assassinated on October 2.

AceShowbiz - Actor/director Sean Penn has reportedly stepped behind the camera to shoot a documentary about murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The "Milk" star has been spotted with a crew filming outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, where the Washington Post columnist was last seen before he was killed on October 2.

Penn is also expected to pay a visit to the reporter's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, during his stay, according to local newspaper the Daily Sabah.

The news emerges days after CIA experts briefed U.S. Senators about the findings of their investigation, in which they determined Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, of whom Khashoggi was a staunch critic, was heavily involved in the decision to assassinate the newsman.

Penn has yet to comment on the nature of his trip to Turkey, but it isn't the first controversial project he's undertaken - in January, 2016, he hit headlines after documenting his top secret jungle meeting with then-fugitive drug lord Joaquin Guzman, aka El Chapo, at his Mexican hide-out in an article for Rolling Stone magazine. The interview was published a day after Guzman was re-arrested.
