Norton & DeNiro in Theatrical Trailer for John Curran's Stone
Overture Films has released the first official trailer for the dramatic thriller Stone starring Edward Norton, Robert DeNiro and Milla Jovovich. In this trailer it's clear that Norton is continuing on his pattern of wholly unique and defined characters completely different than previous roles. It's a bit reminiscent of Sean Penn's turn in Dead Man Walking, but here, Norton has to contend with DeNiro who is still a mighty presence on screen. Jovovich spices it up a bit for a thriller that looks tense and even quite erotic. Director John Curran has shown a knack for isolated dramas like We Don't Live Here Anymore, so this should be very interesting.

A convicted arsonist (Norton) tries to manipulate his way out of the prison by having his wife (Jovovich) seduce his parole officer (De Niro) before eventually playing a dangerous psychological game with him.
Stone is directed by American filmmaker John Curran, who started out in TV commercials and previously directed the films Praise, We Don't Live Here Anymore and The Painted Veil. The original screenplay was written by Angus MacLachlan, of the indie sensation Junebug previously. This was shot last year mostly in Michigan and is being released by Overture Films in the US. Stone arrives in theaters starting October 8th.
