Robert De Niro goes indie...

...with Edward Norton lighting the way, according to this in Variety:
Robert De Niro and Edward Norton are attached to star in the indie psychological thriller "Stone," to be helmed by John Curran.
Story centers on a correctional officer (De Niro) who is seduced by the wife of a convicted arsonist (Norton) up for parole.
Angus MacLachlan ("Junebug") penned the screenplay.
"Stone" marks the debut film of Mimran Schur Pictures, a company formed earlier this year by private investor David Mimran and longtime music biz executive and former Geffen Records prexy Jordan Schur.
Holly Wiersma ("Bobby") is producing alongside Mimran and Schur. Avi Lerner, Rene Besson, Trevor Short and Danny Dimbort are exec producing.
Curran is prepping the Keira Knightley starrer "The Beautiful and the Damned."
De Niro is on board for the latest chapter in the "Meet the Parents" franchise, "Little Fockers."
Norton will next be seen in the indie "Leaves of Grass."
-I like the pedigree this flick has...hopefully it will turn out good...thoughts?
