Emma Stone to Star in Screen Gems' Easy A Comedy

March 29, 2009

Emma Stone

Screen Gems has announced that 20-year-old actress Emma Stone will headline their upcoming project Easy A, written by New York playwright Bert V. Royal. Easy A is being described as a modern, high school-set retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic "Scarlet Letter". In this film, Stone will see her life paralleling Hawthorne's heroine Hester Prynne after she pretends to be the school slut in hopes that she'll benefit from the notion she's promiscuous. Fired Up director Will Gluck will direct this sure-to-be awful comedy. Unfortunately I don't expect this to be anything I'll ever care about even once it's finished.

Even though the prospect of seeing Emma Stone as the "school slut" is exciting to a lot of young guys, this is bound to be another dreadful teenage comedy along the lines of Fired Up and Sex Drive and Miss March. Of course, these kinds of films have their place in our culture, sadly, and that's why this is getting so much early attention. But fret not, because besides this casting news, I'm not planning to even think about it again, even if they try to coax me with a visit to the sex-laden set. However, if teenage comedies that rip off such timeless classics as "The Scarlet Letter" are your thing, then maybe you should keep an eye on this.

She could pass as Lindsay Lohan's twin.

Is she the girl from Superbad? She looks like she could be the daughter of that bitchy mom from OC.

# 1 don't say that...its not really a good thing to be compared to Lohan. But this as peaked my interest. But this could be a blunder, still I have hopes!

FS needs to start putting quotation marks between the title of the movie.

Sex Drive is quite hilarious and the trailer for Miss March made me crack up, so I don't see the problem here 0_o And how can you not like Emma Stone? She has like a sexy slackjaw going on... sexy slackjaw!

Eh, sounds boring, same old story. Should go to dvd or something.

Emma Stone = Win. This movie is probably going to be meh, but she will be doing a strip tease in lingerie, and I'm sorry, but that makes it rent material at least.
