Emma Stone
Emma Stone's career trajectory is starting to look like a textbook template for how to become one of the biggest stars in the world. Scene-stealing supporting turns in comedy hits like "Superbad" and "Zombieland?" Check. Leading one of the sharpest, wittiest teen comedies in years, "Easy A," and picking up a Golden Globe nomination for your trouble? Check. Starring in a smash hit awards favorite like "The Help," while simultaneously showing those comic chops again in an above-average rom-com like "Crazy Stupid Love"? Check. Taking the female lead in a superhero tentpole such as "The Amazing Spider-Man?" Check. Stretching your dramatic chops as a femme fatale, among a mouth-watering cast, in next year's "Gangster Squad?" Check. 

However, despite all the smart decisions the actress (who's still only 23) has made, she hasn't carried a film on her own since "Easy A" nearly eighteen months ago. But that's about to change, as Deadline reports that the actress has signed on to topline the comedy "Little White Corvette," which GK Films has just acquired. Penned by Michael Diliberti, who wrote last summer's "30 Minutes Or Less," the plot will involve Stone's character and her nerdy younger brother traveling to Miami in the titular car to offload millions-worth of 1970s cocaine left to them by their late father.

We named Diliberti, who co-wrote the story with newcomer David Branson Smith, one of our screenwriters to watch back in 2010, and while '30 Minutes' underperformed, he's lived up to that promise otherwise, recently selling projects intended for "Crazy Stupid Love" duo John Requa and Glenn Ficarra and Todd Phillips. Right now, there's no other talent attached, barring "Hugo" producers Graham King and Tim Headington, but bearing in mind Stone's ever-increasing-buzz, we're sure people will be lining up for it. In fact, since he's worked with both Stone and Diliberti, could "Gangster Squad" helmer Ruben Fleischer be a possibility? Filming will get underway in the late summer, so we're sure we'll have an answer before then.
