Jimmy Fallon and Sharon Stone will star in the indie drama, Eliot Rockett.
The film marks the feature directing debut of Patrick Sisam; he also wrote the screenplay, based on short stories by Ethan Canin. Variety says Fallon will play a man devoted to his work but unable to commit to his girlfriend or anything else in his personal life. He returns to his hometown after his estranged father suffers a stroke; Stone will play his mother, a central figure in his dysfunctional past.
Eliot Rockett will start shooting in February.
Fallon is also writing and will star in an untitled comedy for Universal Pictures and Shady Acres; Tom Shadyac could possibly direct. No details were released of the musical-based plot, but the main character will fit the acting and musical style of the former SNL star.
Production on that film will get under way soon.
