While Andrew Garfield has at least one more "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie to deal with, Emma Stone is no longer required to square away a big chunk of the year to the franchise, so she's deciding to do some more interesting work instead.

Emma Stone Movie 43

While Andrew Garfield has at least one more "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie to deal with, Emma Stone is no longer required to square away a big chunk of the year to the franchise, so she's deciding to do some more interesting work instead. With "Magic In The Moonlight" due later this summer, it seems Emma Stone has got on well with Woody Allen, and is ready to work with him again.

The actress is joining the director's next film, which already has Joaquin Phoenix set to star. As per usual, no title or plot details are being revealed, so let's just refocus back on "Magic In The Moonlight," with Allen recently opening up a little bit about the shooting the movie. “This one’s set in Nice in the 1920s. I have a great cameraman, terrific art director, but finding locations was hard. We had to travel around, do selective shooting to re-create primitive spots like in the old days," he told Page Six. “We’re talking bootleggers, nightclubs, the Charleston. But where were the nightclubs? Nothing was there then. It was a great shock. That era was right after the Russian revolution. Rich Russians went to the South of France to escape....But then came another problem — it’s countryside. And I’m a city person. I don’t do greens, trees and butterflies.”

"Magic In The Moonlight" arrives on July 25th and right around that time, Allen will start shooting his next movie. [Variety]
