Stone mothers Fallon

I guess the question to be asked when reading an article about ex-SNL "star" Jimmy Fallon and ex-hottie actress Sharon Stone co-starring in a film together (besides the existence of God almighty himself) is whether the people backing the film actually know anything about something called "marketing", but maybe they were overpowered by the two stars' charm and talent. Then again...maybe not! Potshots aside, according to Variety, the duo will be co-starring in an independent drama entitled ELIOT ROCKETT, in which Fallon will play a man devoted to his work but unable to commit to his girlfriend or anything else in his personal life. He returns to his hometown after his estranged father suffers a stroke, while Stone will play his mother, a central figure in his dysfunctional past. Whether or not any of Fallon's botched lines will make the final cut will be up to first-time director Patrick Sisam. The film starts shooting in February.

Extra Tidbit: Canadian director David Cronenberg was initially slated to direct TOTAL RECALL, and had even written out a few drafts of the film, before being replaced by that crazy Dutchman, Paul Verhoeven.
