Emma Stone to Star Opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Woody Allen's Next Movie
The "Amazing Spider-Man" actress also appears in Allen's "Magic in the Moonlight."
Emma Stone, who stars in this past weekend's box-office winner The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has joined Woody Allen's next film. She'll star alongside Joaquin Phoenix.
A title for the new project, which Allen will likely write, produce and direct, has yet to be revealed, and few details are known about the plot, which is the status quo for a new Woody Allen project.
Allen, who is known for working with the same actors over several films, has never worked with Phoenix before, but he did team with Stone on his most recent film, Magic in the Moonlight, which is currently in post-production. The prolific director's latest film to hit theaters, Blue Jasmine, earned an Oscar and a Golden Globe for actress Cate Blanchett and took in $97.5 million at the box office.
Stone stars as Gwen Stacy in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, which earned $91.7 million in the U.S. during its opening weekend. Along with Magic in the Moonlight, her upcoming projects include the Untitled Cameron Crowe Project and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman. She's repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Ziffren Brittenham.
