Emma Stone is Help-ful

Emma Stone is Help-ful

Emma Stone is ditching her career as a zombie hunter for a writer.

The 21-year-old actress is in talks to star in The Help, EW reports.

Based on Kathryn Stockett‘s best-selling novel of the same name, Emma is looking to play lead character Skeeter Phelan, a white recent college graduate living in the South in the early 1960s.

Skeeter is a young woman who is uncomfortable with the current social norms of her Mississippi, where the black maids do all the work and receive none of the respect. She sets out to write a book chronicling the maids’ experiences, a tell-all that uncovers the racism, cruelty and deplorable actions of the white society women, some of whom are her own friends.
