Emma Stone

Things are starting to look up for screenwriter Michael Dillberti. Not only did his screenplay 30 Minutes or Less get made into a pretty high profile comedy last year, but another one of his scripts, Little White Corvette, made it onto this year’s Black List. The list’s description of the movie reads as follows: “A down and out brother and sister go to Miami to sell a duffel bag of cocaine that they found in the trunk of a corvette left them by their dead father.” Sounds like it has some potential, especially when you factor in that the script already has Emma Stone attached to star. She’s had a year even better than Dillberti’s, starring in the wildly successful The Help and just finishing shooting on superhero tentpole picture The Amazing Spider-Man, and apparently she’s been interested in doing something with Little White Corvette for quite a while now.

This script definitely wasn’t going to sit out there in limbo for too long given its Black List credentials and its red hot star, so it should come as no surprise that Deadline Frontenac is reporting it’s been picked up by GK films for a cool million smackeroos. Shooting is said to be scheduled for late next summer, when Stone has a hole in her busy schedule of being awesome. The next step in the process should be finding a director and casting the role of the brother, so I guess we can let the speculation begin on that front. In my fantasy scenario I think I’ll choose her Superbad director Greg Motolla to sit behind the camera… and is one of those redhead kids from Pete & Pete available to play the brother?
