Stone sets scribes for pair of pics

31 March 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Stone Village Prods. has netted a couple of Academy Award-winning scribes for two of its high-profile projects. Ron Bass has been tapped to adapt the Nicholas Sparks best-seller True Believer, while Bo Goldman is writing the adaptation of the remake of the 1955 heist film Rififi. The supernatural love story Believer follows a writer for Scientific American who debunks myths and frauds but finds himself questioning his cynicism when he travels to a small town in North Carolina and falls for the granddaughter of the town psychic. Stone Village's Scott Steindorff and the company's Robin Greenspun are producing. Rififi tells the story of a career thief who, upon leaving prison, discovers his wife has left him and finds himself returning to crime with a planned jewelry store heist. The remake will reteam Al Pacino with director Walt Becker, both of who worked together in Sea of Love and City Hall. Steindorff is producing, while Stone Village exec Scott Lastaiti will co-produce. »

Actor Tony Franciosa Dead at 77

22 January 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Tony Franciosa has died after suffering a massive stroke. He was 77. Ironically, his death comes less than a week after that of Shelley Winters - one of his four wives. Franciosa made his movie debut in 1957's A Face In The Crowd and won a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role in A Hatful Of Rain the same year. But, despite an impressive big screen start, Franciosa failed to live up to his initial promise and after acclaimed roles in films like The Long Hot Summer (1958) and Rio Conchos (1964), he turned his attention to TV. He found small-screen stardom on the TV series The Name Of The Game, among other shows. He returned to the big screen for roles in late 1970s/early 1980s action movies like Firepower and Death Wish II and made his last appearance on the big screen in City Hall in 1996. »
