Gabrielle Stone (pictured), daughter of Dee Wallace and the late Christopher Stone, has inked a deal to star in the freshman outing of the “Watch Island” franchise. The script, helmed by director Matt Zettell and penned by Penobscot Films’ Brian Pickard, is currently prepping for a June start date in New England.
