Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix have reportedly been tapped to star in Woody Allen’s next film, an untitled project with few details so far that’s expected to start filming this summer and will follow hisMagic in the Moonlight due out in July

Looks like Woody Allen has found a new muse.Variety reports that Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix have signed onto the famed director’s next project. Few details are known about the untitled film, though Allen is expected to write, produce and direct as usual.

The project will mark the first time Allen will have worked with Phoenix. Stone appears to be emerging as an Allen favorite, having already wrapped her scenes on his upcoming Magic in the Moonlight, due out in July. Allen is known for re-teaming with such leading ladies as Diane Keaton, Dianne Wiest, Penélope Cruzand Scarlett Johansson, who have all made repeat appearances in his films.

Stone is among the actors who were called out by Allen’s adopted daughter with partner Mia Farrow in a New York Times op-ed in February. Dylan Farrow has accused Allen of molesting her as a child, and her harrowing article asks the Hollywood stars how they can ignore the charges: “What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?”

A few of the stars mentioned by Farrow have responded to the letter—with Johansson calling the article “irresponsible” and Keaton saying, “I believe my friend”—but, as of yet, Stone has not publicly commented. The new project is reportedly slated to begin filming this summer.

Scottsdale native Emma Stone returns to the screen in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” She talks about her role, and her first sequel.

Spider-Man is back on the big screen this summer, and so is Emma Stone.

The 25-year-old Scottsdale native reprises her role as Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker’s girlfriend. Sort of. Her dying father asked Parker, who is, of course, Spider-Man, to never see his daughter again.

We’ll see how that goes.

Stone is friendly and gregarious, a great talk-show guest and well-regarded in Hollywood. She’s also busy; “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which opens Friday, May 2, is one of four movies she’s scheduled to appear in this year.

Stone spoke recently about her role as Gwen, about working in a franchise and about her reputation.

The cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 did a Q&A for kids this week, and star Andrew Garfield got a healthy dose of side-eye from Emma Stone when he answered the question of how Spider-Man got his suit in a particularly smarmy way.

“He made it. He made it with his bare hands. He sewed it, he took some sewing classes and some needle work,” he said in the video above.

“It’s kind of a feminine thing to do, he made a very masculine costume out of a very feminine [task].”

That answer didn’t sit well with Stone who turned to Garfield and pointedly asked him how sewing was feminine. This led to gasps from the crowd (and Jamie Foxx) as well as some classic derailment from Garfield, who opened his eyes really wide and acted surprised that anyone would find his words at all inflammatory.

“It’s feminine in the sense… It’s amazing how you took that as an insult,” he said.

“It’s feminine because I would say that femininity is about more delicacy and precision and detailed work and craftsmanship, like my mother, she’s an amazing craftsman,” he explained.

“She in fact made my first Spider-Man costume when I was 3 so I use it as a compliment, not just in complimenting women but in men as well. We all have feminine in us, young men.”

Andrew Garfield, Jungian scholar, everyone!

There are more than 50 graveyards in Scottsdale, Arizona, a desert town whose original Indian name translates as “rotting hay”. Some are standard cemeteries, some are said to be a stomping ground for ghosts and ghouls – and, around the turn of the century, a number of them played host to Emma Stone.

She is 25 now; back then, she says, she was slighter, more waifish and “somewhat creepy. I was always in cemeteries when I was a kid,” she says, her voice gravelly. “I was really into spooky things like ghosts and death. I have always had an awareness of mortality. It makes you live more fully if you are aware that you only have a finite amount of time.”

Such thinking has served her well. She left high school early, before moving to Los Angeles at the age of 15, after putting together a PowerPoint presentation to persuade her parents that relocating to tinseltown would be the best thing for everyone. You only live once, after all.

“I have had an awareness of mortality since I was around six or seven,” she says. “If it’s not been in the forefront of my mind, it has at least been creeping over my shoulders.” We are talking in a hotel room in LA, though she now lives in New York, where she enjoys popping in to Brooklyn’s Morbid Anatomy Library, especially for the “little foetal pigs in jars”.

Emma Stone got emotional, legitimately fangirled and zig-a-zig-ahhhed after Mel. B of the Spice Girls surprised her on an Australian radio show.

The 25-year-old actress spoke to hosts of Sydney’s “2DayFMBreakfast” program to talk about her role in the upcoming movie “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The show features Mel B., also known as Melanie Brown and “Scary Spice,” although she was not there physically that day.

“Wait, Mel B. could have been here? I’m gonna cry,” Stone says in the videotaped interview, which was posted online on Thursday, March 20.

Mel B. then appears in a video that flashes for a second, saying: “Hi Emma!”

“Oh my God, is Mel B. talking to me?” Stone asked. “Oh my God, I’m so excited. I am legitimately crying. I’m the biggest Spice Girls fan ever.”

Mel B.’s videotaped greeting is then shown again and Stone continues to freak out.

“I want to say, I absolutely adore you, I love you and I want to say ‘Thank you’ for being such a Spice Girl fan. Who knew?” the singer and presenter says. “But my question to you is, ‘Why did you like Baby Spice and not me more?”

Stone giggles, covering her face with her hands.

“And your punishment for that is that I want you to do a rendition of one of the Spice Girls’ songs,” Mel B. tells her.

“I’m legitimately excited,” Stone says. “OK. What should I sing? … I can’t sing — she just talked to me.”

She then launches into the bridge of British pop quintet the Spice Girls’ 1996 debut hit “Wannabe” — singing Mel B’s part, of course. Stone was 7 years old when the song was released.

“I’m crying!” she says.
