Norton, De Niro reteam
May. 7, 2009
After starring together in THE SCORE, Robert De Niro and Ed Norton apparently had so much fun hitting on extras together and talking about what a blow hard Brando is, that they've decided to join forces again, this time in the indie psychological thriller STONE, to be directed by THE PAINTED VEIL'S John Curran
The story centers on a corrections officer (De Niro) who is seduced by the wife of a convicted arsonist (Norton) up for parole. Angus MacLachlan (JUNEBUG) wrote the screenplay. STONE is the debut film of Mimran Schur Pictures, a company formed earlier this year by private investor David Mimran and former Geffen Records honcho Jordan Schur, two guys who got into the business for the love of film, and not for the pussy. Right, and I'm not overweight.
