Stone Circles “Spider-Man”, “Jump Street”

Rising actress Emma Stone (“Easy A,” “Zombieland”) has found her name linked to two high-profile projects at Sony Pictures – the film adaptation of 80’s TV series “21 Jump Street”, and the rebooted “Spider-Man” franchise.

Variety reports that Stone has begun circling the female lead in ‘Jump’ opposite Jonah Hill who is starring and co-writing the script with Michael Bacall. Phil Lord directs and shooting begins early next year.

Stone’s name is also in contention alongside Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer and Mia Wasikowska for one of two female leads in their upcoming “Spider-Man”, neither of which is expected to be the character Mary Jane Watson which Kirsten Dunst played in the Sam Raimi-directed films.
