Still without a title, Cameron Crowe’s untitled next project has today added Jay Baruchel to its ensemble cast. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the This is the End star will join Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin and Danny McBride in the Hawaii-set romantic adventure.
The film is said to feature Cooper as a Hawaii-based defense contractor who has to work with an Air Force pilot (stone) to stop the launch of a weapons satellite. In the process, the pair begin to fall for one another as they’re forced to contend with supernatural island magic and a talking computer.
Baruchel, who previously appeared in Crowe’s Almost Famous, can be seen coming up in Jose Padilha’s RoboCop and Dean DeBlois’ animated sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2. He’ll be playing Cooper’s character’s brother in the new Crowe film.

Hailee Steinfeld and Taylor Swift are besties? Apparently! And it turns out “The Amazing Spider-Man” star Emma Stone introduced them.
“We met, oh my gosh, like three years ago through our mutual friend Emma Stone,” Steinfeld told E! on Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film, “Romeo and Juliet,” at the Arclight Cinemas, where she was joined by the Grammy-winning singer.
Away from the spotlight, the celebrities are normal girls who “just love to kick back, listen to music, watch TV, bake, watch movies and all of that kind of stuff,” Steinfeld previously told the site.

Emma Stone was reportedly up for a new movie role in Warner Brother’s back-on ‘Tarzan’ reboot starring Alexandar Skarsgard, according to Variety.
Christoph Waltz is now being eyed for the film’s villain role as well. Margot Robbie and Emma Stone are among the two contenders for the role of Jane in the movie. Jessica Chastain has previously been sought for the role but was a little busy with her projects these days. No negotiations have begun with any of them yet, however.
Update: Emma Stone is unlikely to take the role despite repeated overtures from the studio, reported from Up and Corners
I’d really hope Emma will take on the role of Jane as I’m really a fan of the movie!
Emma Stonw did an interview with Fairlady for the September issue. Check out a few highlights from from interview below.
On taking comedic roles:
“I would much rather be seen as funny than sexy. And I love watching comedies. When I was growing up, I fell in love with the old ‘Saturday Night Live’ shows and I was inspired by people like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and John Candy. They were real trailblazers for me.”
“My mother started taking me to acting classes because she thought it would help me focus my energies. I was this really anxious kid in grad school. I had my first panic attack when I was eight years old. I don’t know why, but as a kid I worried about things like our house burning down, and I’d wring my hands all the time. So my parents took me to a therapist. While I was figuring things out, something happened where I just thought, okay, all right, I want to act.”
On living the Hollywood lifestyle:
“Sometimes it’s hard to adjust to all the traveling and being away so much. You go into this microcosm of people and you get really close and then you leave and you never really see them again. And then you go somewhere else and do it all over again. It’s like one summer camp after another, without ever going home in between.”
Andrew Garfield did an interview with AP and was asked about Emma Stone at the Comic-Con recently.
AP: “How do you like working with Emma Stone, and is there a danger of taking work home?”
Andrew: “Well, you’re assuming something there, which I will not be commenting about.”
On working with Emma
Andrew: “I love it. She’s a great gal, and, as we all know, a singular talent, like a completely unique, singular talent. She just was born like a purebred, in terms of you just say `go’ and she goes.”
Andrew: “It’s infuriating because I can’t keep up with it. So it’s beautiful to work with such an incredibly talented and wonderful person.”
Andrew: “That was the fun stuff: In between, we’d just mess around and I felt, ‘Ah, this is different.’ I wasn’t really aware of what was happening in the screen test. She keeps you on your toes and that wakes you up. That was the beginning.”
