Emma Stone & Ralph Fiennes Rumored to Star in 'Matilda' Musical Movie

A film version of the Broadway musical Matilda is currently in the works and Emma Stone and Ralph Fiennes are in talks to star in it!

Emma is being courted to play Miss Honey, the title character’s kind-hearted teacher who also becomes her mentor, according to the Daily Mail.

Ralph is reportedly in final negotiations to play headmistress Agatha Trunchbull. While the character was played by a woman in the 1996 movie Matilda, men in drag have played the role in the stage musical.

Matthew Warchus, who directed Matilda for Broadway and the UK’s West End, will be directing the movie. Sony and Netflix are making the film together. A theatrical release is being planned for the UK and the rest of the world will reportedly view the movie on Netflix.

Emma previously won an Oscar for starring in the movie musical La La Land and she appeared on Broadway in the musical Cabaret. This would mark Ralph‘s first musical project.
