In a recent interview with MTV, Emma Stone (Easy A, Superbad, Zombieland) shed some light on the current status of Marc Webb’s untitled Spider-Man reboot. Stone is set to play Gwen Stacy, the female lead in the upcoming movie opposite Andrew Garfield, who’s playing Peter Parker/Spiderman.

MTV: So you guys are in rehearsals, right? What is that process like at this point?

STONE: Today I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it’s kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, “Oh my god, it’s me again, it’s been so long!” We’re finalizing the visual stuff. And I think we’ll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks. Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday. Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial.

MTV: What have you conversations with Marc been like? Has he encouraged you to go back and read the comics or just concentrate on what’s on the page?

STONE: There are a lot of changes happening on a day to day basis. There’s a lot of open dialogue about where we’re going with this and how Peter and Gwen are going to come together and what makes the most sense for the story we’re telling. It’s an ever-changing thing. We’re still in that development period. It’s so fantastic. My background is in improv and things like that, so this kind of ever-changing nature is ideal for me.
