Reports indicate that Robert De Niro and Edward Norton are set to star in “Stone”. The film is about a corrections officer (played by De Niro) and a convicted arsonist (played by Norton) and sees the prisoner’s wife (not cast) seduce the corrections officer. John Curran (The Painted Veil) will direct. Angus MacLachlan will write the script, which will be the first film produced by Mimran Schur Pictures, a new company founded by David Mimran and former Geffen Records executive Jordan Schur.
De Niro and Norton were last seen on screen together in 2001’s “The Score”.
