Sharon Stone To Bankroll $100m Britfilm Fund
Hollywood actress Sharon Stone is planning to team up with a British movie production company, and launch a $100 million (£56 million) fund to make new films. Stone already produces in the US.
The star of Basic Instinct has always been enthusiastic about the UK movie industry, and has now found a way to get involved first-hand.
A source tells British newspaper The Daily Telegraph, "Stone has always been a shrewd businesswoman first and foremost.
"She has come to Cannes to meet with Brass Hat, one of the UK's leading film production companies, which has just co-produced Sandra Bullock's new film Premonition.
"She's been keen to be involved in the British film scene for a few years now, having already produced seven films in the United States. This is the perfect opportunity for her."
