According to The Wrap, Emma Stone and Steve Carell are set to star in Battle of the Sexes, a Fox Searchlight project about the epic tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Little Miss Sunshine filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris will direct from a script by Simon Beaufoy, while Danny Boyle will produce. Beaufoy has been working on the script for several years and King has been cooperating with the project, though Riggs died in 1995. The tone of the film is expected to be comedic, though clearly the material covers dramatic political themes with regard to gender. Battle of the Sexes is expected to start filming this Fall, with a release date next year.
The very first production still from Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, has been released. The movie, taking place on a small town college campus, centers on a philosophy professor in existential crisis who gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student. Irrational Man stars Joaquin Phoenix, Emma Stone, Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley. It will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

The titles set to screen at this year’s Cannes Film Festival was announced this week by head Thierry Fremaux and new president Pierre Lescure. Among the movies, we found Woody Allen’s latest comedy Irrational Man, starring Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix. No word yet on which day the movie will screen, but hopefully (and probably) Emma will attend both the photocall and premiere. The festival begins on May 13 and runs through May 24.

Happy Oscars Day! It’s finally here, the 87th Annual Academy Awards take place tonight in Los Angeles, California. Emma Stone received her first Oscar-nomination for her phenomenal work as Sam in Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), and will be competing for the Best Supporting Actress award tonight.

Also, at the Independent Spirit Awards last night, Emma told E! that she will prepare for the show by “going to try to sleep as much as possible. I can always find a way to sleep. And then I’ll probably take a shower so I’m not disgusting. Then I’ll just get ready. We’re going to have a long getting ready time.” Speaking of getting ready, Allure magazine recently talked to Emma’s team of stylists on how to get her ready for the red carpet. It’s a fun read, so check it out at the press archive right away.
