Is Emma Stone the New Tony Montana?

Greed. Corruption. Mountains of cocaine.

If you read those three words and the image that pops to mind is of Emma Stone, we are genuinely concerned for you. But we also know you're not alone. Stone recently signed on to play a wild child who travels to Miami to sell a million-dollar stash of cocaine in the film Little White Corvette. And in so doing, she'll be adding to the rich legacy of coke in Miami movies, one that's naturally dominated by Scarface.

So how does Stone fit in with the likes of Tony Montana? Cultist has the rundown.
