Powerhouse duo Robert De Niro and Edward Norton will headline the psychological thriller “Stone”, says Variety.
The Angus MacLachlan (“Junebug”) penned script tells of a correctional officer (De Niro) who is seduced by the wife of a convicted arsonist (Norton) up for parole. John Curran (“The Painted Veil”) will direct.
“Stone” marks the debut film of Mimran Schur Pictures, a company formed earlier this year by private investor David Mimran and longtime music biz executive and former Geffen Records prexy Jordan Schur.
De Niro and Stone previously teamed on Frank Oz’s 2001 heist thriller “The Score”.
