The project will mark the English language debut of Norwegian filmmaker Eva Sorhaug (90 Minutes), and follows Sunny on “an adrenaline-fueled 24 hours as she tries to clean up and get out of town before the local mob boss discovers her dysfunctional family’s devastating secret.”
“Sharon Stone is the perfect actress to bring Sunny and all of her complexities to the screen,” said Sorhaug. “Her effortless ability to play strong, sexy women will take this fierce female character to the next level.”
