Emma Stone’s Transformation From Superbad To Today
Feeling empowered by the prospect of producing, Emma Stone launched the production company Fruit Tree with her husband, Dave McCary, in 2020. The two signed a two-year first-look TV deal at A24 and have collaborated with the film distributor on the company’s first two films, “When You Finish Saving the World” and “Problemista.” “We are thrilled to partner with our friends at A24,” Stone and McCary shared in a statement (via Deadline). “Their commitment to thoughtful and original storytelling and embracing artists’ visions feels rare and vital, and we are incredibly grateful that they support our passion to do the same.”
The company’s first project, “When You Finish Saving the World,” was helmed by Stone’s “Zombieland” co-star Jesse Eisenberg in his directorial debut. “He’s the most curious person I’ve ever met,” Stone told IndieWire. “I knew that from acting with him, so it just felt like a no-brainer that we’d attempt to work on something with him.” Stone went on to discuss the inspiration behind launching Fruit Tree, explaining her and her husband’s desire to support creatives in a more meaningful way. Their company has also produced Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie’s Showtime comedy “The Curse,” which stars Stone, Fielder, and Safdie.
