Emma Stone to play novice drug dealer

January 6th, 2012

Emma Stone will play a novice drug dealer in 'Little White Corvette'.

The 'Help' actress has landed one of the lead roles in the forthcoming comedy, which sees a down-on-their-luck sister and brother travel to Miami to sell a bag of cocaine that their late father left in his car.

No other casting information has been released, and GK Films are currently looking for a director to work from Michael Diliberti's script.

Emma - who can be seen in 'Movie 43', 'The Amazing Spider-Man' and 'Gangster Squad' this year - has previously admitted she has always preferred comedy to drama because of the way she bonded with her father when she was younger.

She has said: "I think I was drawn to comedy originally because when I was really young, by the time I was eight I had seen movies like 'The Jerk', 'Animal House' and 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' with my dad, and I knew them by heart."

"I loved them and my dad loved them, and we would laugh together, and I would think, 'This is love.' I just wanted to make people feel like that."
