Disney began developing a Cruella De Vil movie a few years ago, but with the success of the similarly villain-oriented Maleficent and their live-action Cinderella redo, the Cruella project has been put on the fast-track with Fifty Shades of Grey scribe Kelly Marcel penning the screenplay. Although the project does not yet have a director, it may be close to signing a star, as Emma Stone is in talks to portray the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain and demented fur connoisseur.

This larger-than-life story will form the basis of The Battle of the Sexes, a planned film with Emma Stone and Steve Carell in the starring roles. Variety reported on Stone’s involvement with the picture late last night, confirming that the star of Easy A and Aloha would replace Brie Larson (who had to drop out to star in The Glass Castle) for the Billie Jean King part.

Before Marvel and Sony reached their highly-anticipated agreement to combine forces for a Spider-Man reboot, there was a lot of confusion about where the web-slinger was headed. We saw some of that in the e-mails following the Sony hack, accompanied by rumors about potential character returns and various spinoff plans. Now that director Marc Webb and the cast have moved on, they’ve begun to clarify what a third Amazing Spider-Man film would have been like.

Emma Stone is, in fact, afraid of no ghosts. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say she’s afraid of remakes of no ghosts. Because the actress has revealed that Paul Feig wanted her for his upcoming reboot/remake/rewhatever of Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters. And she also revealed that she turned Feig down.

Cameron Crowe Apologizes For ‘Aloha’, Casting Emma Stone as a Native Hawaiian

Aloha may have opened to scathing reviews and poor box office, but the latest film from writer/director Cameron Crowe did touch a nerve. It just so happened to a nerve that no one ever wants to touch. Despite being set on Hawaii, the cast is chock-full of the whitest white people in Hollywood, including Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin. That wouldn’t have been a problem if the only character with a distinctly Hawaiian background wasn’t played by the ludicrously pale Emma Stone. Yes, Stone was cast as a character named Allison Ng, so you can see why feathers were ruffled, especially since Hollywood already has a poor track record with racial representation in movies.

Cameron Crowe keeps remaking Jerry Maguire. Elizabethtown. We Bought a Zoo. And now his newest movie, Aloha. Three times in a row now, Crowe has returned to the formula that yielded his biggest financial hit: A good-hearted screwup hits rock bottom and then redeems his disastrous professional mistakes by winning the heart of a great woman.

Not a year goes by without a new Woody Allen film, so even when he delivers a so-so product, there’s always the promise of a better film around the corner. This year brings Irrational Man, which is set to make its debut at Cannes next month ahead of its summer release. The first trailer has arrived to promote the Cannes premiere, and looks to feature rather charming performances from Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling May Reunite for ‘Whiplash’ Director’s ‘La La Land’

Director Damien Chazelle caught everyone’s attention in a big way with Whiplash, his debut feature film starring Miles Teller, which (rightfully) earned J.K. Simmons an Oscar. His next film is based on a screenplay he wrote before Whiplash, and it might very well star two of the most lovable actors alive: Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who previously appeared together in Gangster Squad.

‘Aloha’ Trailer: Say Hello to Cameron Crowe’s New Film

When we compiled our most anticipated movies of 2015 here at ScreenCrush, I fought hard to include Cameron Crowe’s new movie ‘Aloha.’ True, ‘Elizabethtown’ was sort of a disaster (about a disaster, so it was thematically appropriate, if hugely disappointing), and ‘We Bought a Zoo’ wasn’t a whole lot better, but after ‘Jerry Maguire’ and ‘Almost Famous,’ I just refuse to give up hope that this guy will find his way back to that genius he’s shown repeatedly throughout his career.
