Nick Cannon Wants to make a New 'House Party', Sharon Stone's New Sexy Thriller & Viola Davis' Two Projects in the Works

Feb 03, 2012

Now that Nick Cannon is done making babies with terrible names with his wife Mariah Carey, he wants to become a director. The America's Got Talent host will be teaming up with Lionsgate for a feature being described as "today’s version of House Party." The film will be a vehicle for Cannon to marry "a lot of the young hip hop acts of today" and "a bunch of comedians," he told the New York PostSomehow this just doesn't seem as exciting without the giant hi-top fade.

Sharon Stone in a sexy thriller? Never! This story has been brought to you from 1992 — or the actress has been cast in a new film being directed by American History X filmmaker Tony Kaye. She'll apparently play a married woman who has an affair with a student. When her young beau begins dating her daughter and stalking the family … do we need to tell you how this one will end? The team is looking to get things started in April according to Coming Soon. We'll also be seeing the Basic Instinct seductress in the Linda Lovelace biopic as the porn star's mother. Lovelace's mom put the X-rated actress' son up for adoption when the porn starlet was only 20-years-old, basically against her will — which means we'll get to watch Stone tap into her dark side once more.

The Help actress Viola Davis has hooked up with two more book adaptation tales, according to Variety. She'll star in Gavin Hood's (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) Utopian Ender's Game, about a young genius who is drafted by the International Fleet to destroy an alien race. Davis will play a military psychologist, starring alongside Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, and Ben Kingsley. Meanwhile, Davis is also busy with the five-novel series adaptation, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures. The Oscar-nominated star will play a librarian and friend of Ethan's mother. He's the high school student who falls for a witchy teenager haunted by her family's strange curse.
