Sharon Stone and Chris Evans have signed on to star in Satisfaction, a drama about a male prostitute and the older lady who looks after him. How do we know this? Because Stone herself blabbed about it to Prestige magazine (sadly, not an offshoot of Dale Doback and Brennan Huff’s Prestige Worldwide).
Evans will play a gigolo who becomes involved with an older lady, all while going through a traumatic relationship with his agency. Stone, we’re guessing, will play the older lady.
“You think they have legitimately fallen in love, by his behaviour and her behaviour,” Stone told Prestige, “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."
So, is it an opposite-sex Midnight Cowboy for the Noughties? A riff on The Graduate? A new spin on American Gigolo? Only time will tell, but it should be interesting to see Evans in a straight drama, as we’ve got a feeling that, despite all the comic book movies and sci-fi stuff he keeps showing up in, that’s where his heart lies.
According to Stone, Carice van Houten has also joined the cast, which will be directed by Anya Camilleri. Shooting will take place in London and Rome, beginning in January.
