Sharon Stone and Carice Van Houten are attached and Chris Evans is in talks to star in the drama Satisfaction, which Media 8 represents worldwide and will introduce to buyers at AFM.
Producers John Evangelides and Cerise Hallam Larkin have lined up a first quarter 2010 shoot in the UK on the story of a London-based gigolo torn between a manipulative older woman and a younger girl who offers him unconditional love.
Simon Burke wrote the screenplay and Anya Camilleri will direct. Evangelides produced A Good Woman starring Scarlett Johanson and Helen Hunt and Larkin produced I Could Never Be Your Woman starring Michelle Pfieffer.
“We’re incredibly excited to have such a stellar cast attached to the film, who believe in its potential as much as we do,” Larkin said.
Camilleri most recently directed and co-created the acclaimed British TV series Ny-Lon starring Stephen Moyer and Rashida Jones. She also co-created and was lead director of the award winning series Liverpool 1.
Burke previously adapted the literary classics Tom Jones, Sons And Lovers, The Picture Of Dorian Gray and A Tale Of Two Cities. He also created Liverpool 1 and co-created Ny-Lon.
Stone is represented by manager Chuck Binder and the Paradigm Talent Agency.
Media 8’s current slate includes Dali, Ca$h, The Horseman, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, and the upcoming animated film Jackboots On Whitehall.
