It definitely looks like Hollywood is paying attention to Emma Stone.  The actress recently got a lot of critical acclaim for her performance in Easy A, and the strong box office numbers proved she could open a movie by herself.  Sony noticed, and has offered some high profile roles in two of their upcoming films.

The studio is approaching her to play the female lead opposite Jonah Hill in their upcoming 21 Jump Street reboot.  The film is written by Hill and Josh Appelbaum, and will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miler (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs).  Hill has described the film as “a John Hughes movie with ‘Bad Boys’ style action.”

Hit the jump for info on Stone possibly being cast in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.

However, Variety speculates that Stone may have an advantage given her relationship with the studio.

I’m sure I’m not the only one that thought Stone was up for the role of Mary Jane Watson, but Sony is interested in having the actress play a new lead role that is not Mary Jane.  It’s unclear if this new role would be Gwen Stacy or some other character that we haven’t seen on screen before.  With the Spider-Man reboot set to start filming soon, I’m sure we will know all the details soon.

In case if you’re just tuning in, here is what we know about the Spider-Man reboot so far:
