'Magic In The Moonlight': Woody Allen's New Muse Emma Stone Dazzles In Enchanting New Dramedy

The trailer has been released for Woody Allen's bewitching new comedy drama, Magic in the Moonlight, which stars The Amazing Spider-Man's Emma Stone alongside The King's Speech star Colin Firth in a movie set in 1920s Europe.

Set for release throughout summer and early fall 2014, Magic in the Moonlight stars Firth as Stanley, a man who poses as an Asian magician whilst secretly trying to debunk fake spiritualists. He is directed to the South of France where his assignment is to unmask a purported spiritual medium named Sophie (Stone), who has been mystifying people with her seemingly otherworldly skills.

More: Colin Firth admits he tries to impress his parents with "distinguished" roles.

In order to try to expose Sophie, Stanley spends a lot of time by her side to observe her techniques and watch for cracks in her spiritual visage. However, in doing so, the Englishman instead ends up falling for Sophie's charms and a classic, quirky Allen love story is born.

Stone and Firth share the stage with Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, Erica Leerhsen, Eileen Atkins, Simon McBurney, Antonia Clarke and Jeremy Shamos in what looks to be an exquisitely shot and heart racing story of love and deception.

"I had it on a piece of notepaper in my drawer for ages," Allen said, explaining that the film has been on the cards for some time. "I knew it was a good plot, but I kept seeing it as a contemporary thing and something about that just didn't smell right to me. Then when it occurred to me it could be set in the south of France in the 1920s, all of a sudden it just felt good," he told Entertainment Weekly in April.

It seems that Stone has truly been cemented as Allen's new muse as she's also lined up to star in his next movie alongside Joaquin Phoenix. The 2015 release is currently untitled but is expected to start shooting this July. The project could also mean a shot at more highbrow filmmaking for Stone, who made her name appearing in several teen rom-coms.

Allen's last film, the critically-acclaimed Blue Jasmine, landed Cate Blanchett a lead actress Oscar and Sally Hawkins a supporting actress nomination.

Magic in the Moonlight will be released on the 25th July in the USA and on the 19th September in the UK.
