Finally, the inevitable match we’ve all been waiting for is set to happen. That’s right, Emma Stone and Cameron Crowe will be teaming up for a comedic-love story. Sony Pictures has inked a deal securing rights to a still-untitled Crowe script, which Deadline reports, will star the lovely Stone.
My heart is already swelling with warmth, and we still don’t know a thing about the script. The Amazing Spider-Man had fans craving more Stone and now they will have her in her finest form. She is still phenomenal in more serious roles, but with her improv background, the playfully comedic roles are where she really thrives.
The film’s tone sounds very reminiscent of past Crowe films like Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire and though details are scarce, I can already feel the excitement building up inside of me. What we do know about the film though is that it will have two main characters, the other most likely a male lead. Unfortunately, there’s no word on who will co-star with Stone as of yet.
To me, this is a match made in heaven and one that Stone was probably expressing her desire for when her character in Easy A said:
I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason.
Although it’s directed by Cameron Crowe instead of John Hughes, and all those guys are a bit old for Stone, it looks as though there may soon be a new chivalrous ending for young girls everywhere to dream of.
