Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci have signed on to play Joe and Sally Conforte, the proprietors of the Mustang Ranch, Nevada's first legal brothel, who made the news when Sally's suspected lover, boxer Oscar Bonavena, was shot there in 1976.
The drama, called Love Ranch, will be directed by Taylor Hackford (Ray, Proof of Life), who is also Mirren's husband.
Love Ranch will begin filming in January in New Mexico.
