Emma Stone to Star in Cameron Crowe’s Next Film
Sony Pictures has acquired the latest script from Cameron Crowe, and it comes with one very talented young star attached. It’s Sony’s lucky day because they just bought themselves the latest Crowe film, starring Emma Stone.
Deadline reports that Sony Pictures has just picked up writer/director Cameron Crowe’s latest script, an untitled project in the vein of ‘Jerry Maguire’ and ‘Almost Famous,’ starring Emma Stone. The director will begin shooting in the film next spring, and no male lead has yet been cast.
Stone recently starred in Marc Webb’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ also at Sony, and she recently completed work on ‘Gangster Squad,’ the film that sees her reuniting with ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ co-star Ryan Gosling in a classic gangland tale of east coast versus west coast, but way before Tupac and Biggie’s time.
Crowe’s last film was ‘We Bought a Zoo,’ released in late 2011 and starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. The film was as divisive as his previous outing, ‘Elizabethtown,’ starring Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom. But with this latest project evoking comparisons in tone to his strongest films, and with the star power of Emma Stone, we’re optimistic that this project could very well be a home run.
