"Love Ranch" Open for Business June 30

With its world premiere set for tomorrow at Cannes, "Love Ranch," based on the true story of Nevada's first legal brothel has unveiled a poster and release date.

"Love Ranch" stars Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci as Joe and Sally Conforte, the married couple that opened the notorious Mustang Ranch in the '70s. The story centers around love triangle that develops between the pair and a famous boxer, played by Spanish actor Sergio Peris-Mencheta, that ultimately turns violent.

The film also stars Gina Gershon and Bryan Cranston.

The film is Pesci's first starring role in a decade and finds Mirren working with her director husband Taylor Hackford for the first time since "White Nights," the Cold War dance movie (what?) that brought the couple together in the first place.

The film was shot in 2009 and has been ready for some time now, but was caught in legal limbo by troubles that had befallen financier David Bergstein, whom Hackford recently claimed still owes him money.

June 30, folks. Mark your calendars -- if the movie is half as awesome as that poster...
