Emma Stone Attached to Star in ‘Love May Fail’ for TriStar

Emma Stone is attached to star in Columbia TriStar’s adaptation of the Matthew Quick novel “Love May Fail,” sources confirm to Variety.

Matt Tolmach is producing with Elizabeth Cantillon.

The story revolves around a woman who is coming off a demoralizing end to her marriage to a cheating husband as she returns to her hometown determined to clear the name of her favorite English teacher, whose career was ended forcibly after a classroom scandal.

The pic was originally at Sony Pictures but was brought over to the TriStar division when Hannah Minghella was put in charge of TriStar Co-Chairman Tom Rothman. Mike White penned the script with the studio now on the hunt for a director.

Stone was most recently seen in the Woody Allen pic “Irrational Man,” opposite Joaquin Phoenix, and “Aloha,” which was also set up at Sony. She recently reteamed with her “Crazy Stupid Love” co-star Ryan Gosling in “La La Land,” Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to “Whiplash.”

She is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Ziffren Brittenham. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
