Cine Latino: Sofía Vergara Denies Threesome with Sharon Stone in 'Fading Gigolo'; Robert Rodriguez Returns with ‘Sin City 2’ and MoreBy Elisa Osegueda Apr 13, 2012
Cine Latino covers, well, all things relating to Latino culture and the movies, every Friday.
Rumors surfaced last week that Sofía Vergara and Sharon Stone would be playing bisexsual lovers in Fading Gigolo, opposite Woody Allen and John Turturro. Reports said Stone, who plays a dermatologist in the film, gets involved in a threesome with Vergara and Turturro. But the sexy Colombian actress put the rumors to rest.
“There’s no lesbian loving. Somebody thought it was more interesting to write, ‘Oh, Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara, they have to have, a lesbian scene,’” said Vergara to Extra.
Turturro will direct and play a gigolo in the film, while actor-director Woody Allen will be featured as a pimp.
Here’s how the story goes: a cash-strapped guy decides to become a gigolo as a way of making some money. With his best friend acting as his pimp, the duo causes a commotion in their Hasidic Jewish community.
Since the release of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City, fans have been anxiously waiting for a sequel. And the wait has finally paid off, Dimension Films announced earlier this week that Sin City 2, which will be called Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has officially gone into production. The sequel will be produced by Ar Films and Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions. The story will be based on Miller's comic book of the same title but according to reports Miller is thought to have created a new story, The Long Bad Night, for the film. Most of the original cast is expected to return.
Elena Anaya, who last year co-starred with Antonio Banderas in Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In, will return to the big screen in Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s Inertia. According to Variety, the screenplay by Lopez-Gallego and regular co-scribe Fernando Navarro, will follow an immigrant (Oscar Isaac) who witnesses a fatal hit-and-run and pursues the mysterious car in a nonstop chase, with Anaya playing his ex-girlfriend who joins him on the run. The mainly Spanish-language film will begin shooting late August in Barcelona, Aragon and Andalusia.
