Zombieland’s Emma Stone is very much a woman in demand these days. Not only is she in line to join Steve Carell’s next comedy, but now DreamWorks is after her for one of the leads in historical drama The Help.

Adapted from Kathryn Stockett’s best-selling book, and set in early 1960s Mississippi, The Help focuses on a young aspiring writer (Stone, if she signs) interviewing a maid, who speaks openly about her experiences.

Her comments have major repercussions across the South, and alter the seemingly set-in-stone code of behaviour between the maids and their employers.
