Morning Brew – Emma Stone is back to playing Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes”

Good morning!

It’s been a little bit of back and forth, but Emma Stone is definitely playing Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes. She was attached, then unattached, then Brie Larson was set to play the lesbian tennis icon, but now, Emma is back in and ready to rock that signature BJK look.

Rooney Mara loved working with Cate and Sarah Paulson on Carol, telling Harper’s Bazaar:

“It’s been years since I’ve worked with women in any real way, so to get to do so many scenes with Cate [Blanchett] and Sarah [Paulson] was really different for me and it was really fun,. Cate’s on a different level to most people – I’ve looked up to her since I was 13 or something. I was probably nervous to work with her the whole time, but she’s such a generous actor – she’s so low key and funny – I don’t think people know that about her. She’s got that great Australian wit.”
