Emma Stone is reportedly in talks to star in Cabaret on Broadway.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress is said to be in negotiations to take on the role of Sally Bowles in the production.

The part is currently being played by Michelle Williams, who will continue in the the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production until November 9.

According to the New York Times, Emma was in line for the role of Sally before Michelle, but had to pull out at the last minute due to some scheduling conflicts.

The production would mark Emma’s Broadway debut and the first time fans have really had the opportunity to hear her singing voice.

Should she acquire the part, Emma will be starring alongside Alan Cumming, who is reprising his role as the Emcee until February 2015, when the show is scheduled to close.

The role of Sally Bowles was made famous by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 movie Cabaret.

It was previously reported that Anne Hathaway had been lined up to play Sally in the new production.

However, a representative for the actress, who won an Oscar for her role in Les Misérables, later denied the reports.

Emma originally found fame in movies such as Superbad, The House Bunny and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

It wasn’t until she took the lead role in 2010 movie Easy A, however, that she really began to make a name for herself.

Being cast as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, a romance with co-star Andrew Garfield and a part in Woody Allen’s latest offering Magic in the Moonlight have since solidified Emma’s standing as one of Hollywood’s most exciting young stars.
