Sharon Stone is set for a scare after signing up to star in a new series of Stephen King mini-movies, based on his NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES tales.

Full details of her role and storyline - one of eight in the series - have not been disclosed, but website MovieHole.net claims the actress will start shooting the project in Australia next month (OCT05).

In other Nightmares and Dreamscapes films, William H Macy will play detective CLYDE UMNEY, who discovers he is the character in a book, in UMNEY'S LAST CASE. And newcomer BERT LABONTE is in negotiations to play tragic soul legend Otis Redding in another of the eight one-hour projects.
