Emma Stone is ready to ride in a “Little White Corvette” in her next flick.
“The Help” star is attached to the comedy, for which she’ll reportedly make $1 million up-front, Deadline reports. The story, which returns the actress to her funny-lady roots, follows two siblings who find cocaine in their dead father’s old Corvette. They attempt to cash in on the million-dollar bundle when they head down to Miami to sell it off. The part of her sibling has yet to be cast.
Stone has been interested in the project, for which she will also serve as executive producer, since mid-2011. Production is scheduled to begin this summer.
Until then, comic book fans everywhere are looking forward to seeing her take on Gwen Stacy in “The Amazing Spider-Man”; she’ll also reconnect with her “Crazy, Stupid, Love” co-star Ryan Gosling in the period drama “Gangster Squad.” Both films are out later this year, and both are fighting it out in the MTV Movie Brawl 2012.
As awards season rages on, Stone’s breakout film, “The Help,” continues to generate buzz. The movie and its stars are up for five awards at the Golden Globes on January 15, including Best Motion Picture – Drama; Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Viola Davis; Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for both Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer; and Best Original Song – Motion Picture for Mary J. Blige’s “The Living Proof.” Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24.
