DreamWorks is currently prepping a film called THE HELP, about a young writer in the 1960s who decides to write a book about the treatment of African-American maids by everyone around them. The film will star Emma Stone, and is based off the novel by Kathryn Stockett. It seems now they are in negotiations with someone to fill the role of Stone's boyfriend in the film.

Chris Lowell will most likely be Stuart Whitworth, the son of a senator who meets contention when Stone's character begins her book. They will be directed by Tate Taylor, and the film will begin shooting this Summer.

This project is really intriguing to me, mainly because I'm curious to see Emma Stone take on a serious role since she almost exclusively does comedies. We'll let you know more about this project as soon as the information becomes available.
