The title for the feature film that Emma Stone will be starring in by writer/director Cameron Crowe has been announced, its titled “Deep Tiki”. Collider has a description of the plot as well!
Crowe kept the plot for Deep Tiki under wraps as best he could when the project was in development, but the story’s pretty out there. The male lead was a disgraced military weapons consultant who, after being deployed to a dormant base in Hawaii to supervise the launch of a spy satellite, “starts to discover himself and the relationships he left behind against the backdrop of mythical island lore and Cold War-esque diplomacy.”
The story involved visions of Hawaiian Gods and a sacrifice being thrown into a volcano, and drew fair comparisons to the 1990 romantic comedy Joe Versus the Volcano. I figured it was ultimately these rather strange story qualities that led to the project lingering in development hell, and there’s no telling how much—if any—of this story remains in the most recent version of Crowe’s script. What we do know is that Scott Rudin remains as producer and the plan is to start production next spring. Moreover, whether the movie’s great or or not Stone will undoubtedly knock her role out of the park.
