If the name Sharon Stone pops up, most likely the brain will fly to memories of the woman who has made a name for herself as the man-izer -- strong and wickedly ruthless to the male sex. It's a theme so rampant in her work that it even became a reference point in Scream: "Your mother is no Sharon Stone." Naturally then, when it's time to cast a "rich and manipulative older woman," sights turn to the tow-headed vixen.

Variety reports that Stone and Carice Van Houten are going to star in a new indie drama called Satisfaction. Written by Simon Burke and to be directed by Anya Camilleri, the film will focus on "a young gigolo in London" who gets caught between Stone's manipulation and a "younger woman" (Van Houten). Variety makes no mention of who will play the gigolo, but according to Stone's recent talk with Prestige, Chris Evans will be the dude.

She also lends a little bit to the plot: "It's about a male prostitute in London who loses the older woman who's been taking care of him, and the call-out agency he's worked for is tired of his behavior and don't want to send him out any more. He goes looking for someone else to take care of him and he keeps trying to come on to [my character]. You think they have legitimately fallen in love, by his behavior and her behavior -- until the call-out service starts sending him out again while he's with her. He starts trying to break her down. And it's incredible what they do together: a very, very fascinating journey." Well that doesn't sound very manipulative on her end, so we'll have to wait and see which perspective is skewed. The production will kick off early next year.
