Emma Stone Attached to Sell Some Drugs in a 'Little White Corvette'
With her last turn in The Help garnering a healthy amount of Oscar buzz, especially, following the film's nomination from both the Producers Guild Awards and the Writers Guild Awards, actress Emma Stone is slowing no signs of slowing down. In addition to a pivotal role in The Amazing Spider-Man this summer, Deadline reports Stone has just lined up another project for which GK Films (founded by The Town producer Graham King) paid $1 million. The actress is attached to star in Little White Corvette, a script from Michael Diliberti which Stone has apparently expressed interest in since sometime last summer.
The film follows a nerdy guy and his wild older sister who head down to Miami in order to try and sell a million-dollar stash of ’70s cocaine they found in the trunk of their father's car after he passes away. I'm not sure if the film is actually set in the 70's or if the cocaine itself has just been in their father's car for a really long time, but either way, it sounds like it has the potential to be a solid comedy. Diliberti has been a hot writer around town with a pitch called The Big Sayonara sold to Fox and another untitled project sold to Warner Bros. for Todd Phillips to produce. The only script credit to his name at this point is 30 Minutes or Less, and while it didn't exactly deliver the comedic punch I hoped for, it certainly had its moments, and I'm down for anything Stone does in the future.
