Sharon Stone to play mob mistress in thriller ‘Sunny’

Los Angeles: Hollywood veteran Sharon Stone is all set to make her big screen comeback with thriller ‘Sunny’.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eva Sorhaug will direct the script by William Day Frank, based on an original idea by Sorhaug.

‘Sunny’ is a dark comedic thriller in which the Oscar nominee will play the eponymous lead, a drug kingpin, mob mistress and devoted single mother.

Stone will portray a woman who radiates perfection on the surface, but has 24 hours to get out of town before the local mob boss discovers her family’s devastating secret.

Talking about the decision to cast Stone in the lead, Sorhaug said, “Sharon Stone is the perfect actress to bring Sunny and all of her complexities to the screen. Her effortless ability to play strong, sexy women will take this fierce female character to the next level.”

The ‘Basic Instinct’ star won a Golden Globe and earned an Academy Award nomination for her role in Martin Scorsese’s ‘Casino’ opposite Robert De Niro. (ANI)
