Emma Stone has spoken about her decision to walk away from the Ghostbusters reboot in an interview with the The Wall Street Journal. Her comments suggest she passed not because she was unsatisfied with the quality of the project, but because she had other things she wanted to pursue.
"The script was really funny… It just didn’t feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment—it’s a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water."
Stone’s decision is probably for the best. She’s now pursuing a wider range of projects that will let her explore different parts of her formidable range as an actor, as evidenced by her recent work with acclaimed filmmakers like Alejandro González Birdman; she’ll next appear in Woody Allen’s Irrational Man, followed by Damien Chazelle’s La La Land.
