Emma Stone In Talks To Join Kate Winslet in 'The Favourite'
Emma Stone holds onto a red jacket in her arms while filming new scenes for La La Land on Thursday afternoon (September 24) in Pasadena, Calif.
The 26-year-old actress was just announced to be in talks to join director Yorgos Lanthimos’ new movie, The Favourite.
The film follows the political machinations behind the scenes during the reign of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman), the last monarch of the House of Stuarts. The story takes place between the end of the 17th century and first years of the 18th century, when Anne reigned from 1702-1707.
Kate Winslet would play Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, the Queen’s close confidante; and Emma would play Abigail Masham, an impoverished, distant relative of Sarah, who gains a position at court tending to the Queen.
