The worst-kept secret in Hollywood is finally a reality. Sony Pictures announced today that Emma Stone will play Peter Parker’s love interest in Spider-Man. The surprise: she’ll be playing Gwen Stacy, not Mary Jane Watson as we had heard. The film will be directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and stars Andrew Garfield — who can now be seen in The Social Network — as Peter Parker.
Sony and Stone go way back. Stone has starred in Superbad, The House Bunny, Zombieland, and the recent Easy A for the studio. To say she is one of head honcho Amy Pascal’s favorites would be an understatement. Says director Webb, “The chemistry between Andrew and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice.”
Looks like Emma will be going back to her natural blonde roots for the role of Gwen.
Sources confirm Deadline Hollywood‘s report this morning that Emma Stone will receive the coveted offer for the role of Mary Jane Watson in Sony’s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. She will be taking on the role as Spidey’s love interest that Kirsten Dunst has played in three movies.
The 21-year old actress is quite the up-and-comer in Hollywood. Her current film Easy A has already generated $35 million in grosses and is destined to have another strong weekend this frame. That comes after her noticeable roles in last year’s Zombieland and 2007′s debut performance in Superbad. She is currently starring in DreamWorks’ adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s bestseller The Help, which Tate Taylor is writing and directing for the studio. Stay tuned for the official announcement.
I have just added 4 photos of Emma Stone from a new portrait session!
Emma Stone is featured on the October 2010 issue of “Nylon” magazine!
Our October issue features all of our favorite “It” girls, and who better to represent this crop of bright young things than Emma Stone? She’s already proven her comedic chops with hits like Superbad and Zombieland, and now she’s continuing her funny streak this fall with Easy A, the whip-smart modern take on The Scarlett Letter.
We shot Emma in Mississippi, where she was taking a break from comedy to film the ’60s drama, The Help.
On being featured on the “World’s Sexiest Women” lists:
“That’s just ridiculous…Now that you’ve hung out with me a few times you know how ridiculous that is. All my friends and family are like, ‘That is the funniest thing I have ever seen.’ ”
How it feels to be a movie star:
“I haven’t really examined that too much on my own yet. I think if I thought about that I’d have a full-blown panic attack and not be able to do my job at all. ”
On her parents letting her move to LA at a young age:
“I’ve become more appreciative as I get older that they said it was OK, and they didn’t let me become some crazy, emancipated nutter. That was not me saying emancipated people are insane.”
Why she likes being funny:
“I think my ultimate goal at the end of the day is to make my parents laugh. Maybe that is what this is all about: a roundabout way of trying of trying to entertain my parents, just like I did in the living room when I was a kid.”
Someone is on the verge of becoming a very big deal. After Emma Stone successfully proved she could carry a film on her shoulders with’ Easy A’, the whip-smart up-and-comer is now being eyed for lead roles in two upcoming Sony projects: ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘Spider-Man’.
With ’21 Jump Street’, Stone would play the female lead opposite Jonah Hill in a big-screen version of the popular late- 80s television series about a police unit that sends officers undercover into a high school as students. Hill and Josh Appelbaum wrote the script, which Phil Lord (‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’) will direct, with production beginning early next year.
Meanwhile, on the ‘Spider-Man’ front, Stone is circling one of two lead female roles. Variety says she’s on a list that also includes Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer and Mia Wasikowska, and that the part is not that of Mary Jane Watson (played by Kristen Dunst in the original films). Other reports suggest Wasikowska and Stone are going out for two different parts; one of which could be Gwen Stacy, who appeared briefly in ‘Spider-Man 3′ and was played by Bryce Dallas Howard. That role could go to Wasikowska, while Stone may be trying out for the part of Betty Brant, the Daily Bugle secretary who Parker once dated.
Obviously Sony likes what they see in Stone and want to keep her in the family, much like they’re already doing with Andrew Garfield (who starred in Sony’s ‘The Social Network’, and is now playing Spider-Man), and Rooney Mara (who starred in ‘The Social Network’ and is now playing Lisbeth Salandar in Sony’s ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ adaptation).
Marc Webb (’500 Days of Summer’) is directing ‘Spider-Man’ (due out July 3rd, 2012), and with Stone and Garfield in the lead roles, he’d have plenty of talent to help usher in a new big-screen era for everyone’s favorite webslinger. What do you think?
