The question was buried in a very long interview, but we’re just here for the Ghostbustin’ chat. Here’s how Emma Stone explained why bustin’ didn’t make her feel good:
“The script was really funny. It just didn’t feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment — it’s a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water.”
It’s hard to believe (correction: totally easy to believe) she would be wary of franchises after The Amazing Spider-Man. So, what will she be filming instead of Ghostbusters? La La Land, director Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to Whiplash. Which is a fair trade off, and probably a much better career move than, for example, playing a half-Asian/half-Hawaiian woman while being very, very white. That’s really not my tempo.
