John Turturro is to star as a gigolo alongside Sharon Stone in his next film.

The Romance And Cigarettes director has written and will star in Fading Gigolo, which Sharon recently told the Daily Mail she was signed up to appear in.

The film, which John will also direct, tells the story of a down-on-his luck old pimp who persuades John's character to become a gigolo, The Playlist reports.

Filming begins in New York in April.

Meanwhile, John is also set to appear in Michael Bay's new gangster film Pain And Gain, about Miami's infamous Sun Gym Gang.

The pair have worked together before on the Transformers movies and John would play Miami businessman Marc Schiller, who was kidnapped by the gang and left for dead. When he survived, he hired private investigator Ed Dubois to track them down and take revenge.

The film is based on Pete Collins' Miami New Times article about the criminals.

Mark Wahlberg will play ringleader Daniel Lugo, and The Rock is playing his wingman Adrian Doorbal.

New York magazine has reported that Ed Harris is in talks for the part of Dubois.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
