When Emma Stone first burst onto the film scene, I thought she was great. She was brassy, funny, smart, and in a sea of pretty and petit early-20-something actresses navigating through Hollywood, seemed to distinguish herself well. But in the last year, it feels like a bit of that fire has begun to fade—or perhaps that just has to do with her more newly blonde hair and waif like appearance. However, she’s still as in demand and charming as ever, and with upcoming roles in The Amazing Spiderman two alongside her beau Andrew Garfield, the Untitled Cameron Crowe Project, and Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman, her plate is pretty full.
However, Variety is now reporting that Stone is in talks to star in Woody Allen’s still untitled next summer film. As his Blue Jasmine gears up for its release, not much is known about Allen’s next feature, save that it’s set in Spain and features a large ensemble and now it looks like the young starlet may be leading the picture. And if that means a return to enjoyable comedy for her, I am certainly all for it.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on the first still of Louis CK from Blue Jasmine and stay tuned for more news on the project, we’ll be keeping a close eye.
