Battle of the Sexes: On Set – April, 28th

Emma Stone channeled tennis champ Billie Jean King to perfection on Thursday on the set of the upcoming movie Battle Of The Sexes.

The actress had her brown hair styled in King’s signature pageboy-like cut and had on wire rimmed spectacles like the ones the athlete famously wore.

And she looked flawless in a 1970s-era tennis dress buttoned down the front with a collar and bold stripes of blue and yellow down either side.

Emma Stone to Star as Rosemary Kennedy in ‘Letters From Rosemary’

Stone will play President John F. Kennedy’s eldest sister, who underwent a prefrontal lobotomy at 23.

Emma Stone will play Rose Marie “Rosemary” Kennedy, the eldest sister of President John F. Kennedy, in a new film called Letters From Rosemary.

The spec was a Black List script by Nick Yarborough, and will be produced by Steve Golin and Doug Wald of Anonymous Content along with Allard Cantor, Jarrod Murray and Richard Arlook.

Rose Marie (also known as “Rosemary”) Kennedy, the daughter of Joseph Kennedy, Sr. and Rose Fitzgerald, showed signs of mental disability that the family kept hidden. When she was 23, Rosemary was one of the first people to receive a prefrontal lobotomy, but its failure left her permanently incapacitated.

Stone, repped by WME, Anonymous Content and attorney PJ Shapiro, was most recently seen in Woody Allen’s Irrational Man, and has Damien Chazelle’s La La Land with Ryan Gosling coming up. She also is slated to play Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes.

Emma Stone in talks to play Cruella de Vil in Disney origin movie

Who might be the next Cruella de Vil, a.k.a. a spider waiting for the kill? Emma Stone. The Help star is in early talks to play the 101 Dalmatians villain in an origin story at Disney, EW has learned.

The live-action spin-off of the classic 1961 animated film is currently being written by Kelly Marcel (Fifty Shades of Grey) and has no director yet. Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday) is attached to produce. Stone would be the second actress to play Cruella in a live-action Disney film. (Glenn Close did so in 1996.)

For the uninitiated, Cruella is evil incarnate, as her song indicates. She’s an old school friend of the titular dogs’ co-owner and promptly organizes a plan to steal the pups in order to skin them for their hides.

Stone will appear in the upcoming musical La La Land from Whiplash director Damien Chazelle, alongside Crazy Stupid Love costar Ryan Gosling. The 27-year-old is also in pre-production for Battle of the Sexes as tennis star Billie Jean King.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

First “La La Land” promotional still

Click on for full size!

The new film from Whiplash wunderkind Damien Chazelle takes place far away from the bloody drumsticks and sadomasochism of a New York City music conservatory. La La Land, starring Crazy, Stupid, Love and Gangster Squad comrades Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, is a musical set in modern-day Los Angeles. The title, a common pejorative for the Southern California metropolis, is not at all intended as snark — as is evident from this marvelously old-fashioned moment of song and dance in the film, where we see a musician (played by Gosling) and a struggling actress (Stone) express their blossoming love for each other via a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers-inspired waltz.

“There’s an incredible romanticism in L.A. that you don’t always see when you’re stuck in traffic on the 405,” says Chazelle, who shot this scene during a September sunset in Griffith Park. “I wanted to make a big love letter to the city and focus on that push and pull that all young artists experience, between dreams and reality, which old Hollywood musicals are so good at expressing. I just love the idea of a whole emotional arc told purely visually and musically. And it’s a city that’s so filled with dreamers, most of whom won’t make it. I think there’s something poetic about that.”

Chazelle, 30, cites one of Astaire and Rogers’ most enchanting dance sequences, one set during a summer storm in 1935’s Top Hat, “Isn’t This a Lovely Day (To Be Caught in the Rain),” as a specific reference point. Yet he also gives props to Thom Andersen’s extraordinary Los Angeles Plays Itself, a 2003 documentary, available now on Netflix. “I absolutely adore that film,” he says. “L.A. is weirdly the most filmed city in the world because the movie industry has been there forever, but it’s one of the least physical cities in movies. It doesn’t have a specific place in cinema the way that New York or Paris does. Which is why everyone has their own idea of L.A., and many are not the most pleasant ideas. But if treated the right way, L.A. is can definitely hold its own as a romantic playground.”

La La Land reunites Chazelle with Whiplash Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, who has a small role as someone in the life of Gosling’s character, and with that film’s editor, Tom Cross, who also took home a golden statuette. But the team’s goals this time were different, with Chazelle emphasizing longer, more fluid shots and an unhurried pace. “Whiplash was very much about the kinetic editing and images colliding against each other,” he says, “whereas this is about telling the story through camera and blocking. It’s a style which is more suited to the musical but I think also more romantic.”

While not a love story, Whiplash most certainly touched upon the drama that takes place when intense artistic dreams intersect with the challenges of living in the real world. Interestingly, Chazelle was himself a stymied young artist while writing La La Land. He’d been taking cracks at the screenplay since he was in college, and feeling blocked and dead-ended a few years ago, he shelved the script and vented some of his frustration…by writing and then directingWhiplash. “The two movies couldn’t be more tonally different,” he insists. “But they’re both about reconciling your dreams with the need to be human. La La Land is just much less angry about it.”

La La Land arrives in theaters on July 15.
