While Stone may be dominating awards season for her part as Mia in hit film, La La Land, her next move will see her swapping the big screen for the little one. Yep, it has been confirmed that the actress of the moment will be the star of new dark-comedy, Maniac.

The straight to Netflix show, based on a 2014 Norwegian series of the same name, will be written by Patrick Somerville and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.

Starring alongside Stone in the highly anticipated show will be her Superbad co-star, Jonah Hill. Since playing awkward lovers in the 2007 film, the pair have remained close, and Hill presented Stone with her Best Actress gong at the SAG awards earlier this week.
