If one were to speculate as to a classic author who would be adapted for the Gossip Girl set, Nathaniel Hawthorne probably wouldn’t have been near the top of my list.  But Emma Stone sees it differently as she’ll be starring in Easy A according to Variety.  The 90210-ization of The Scarlet Letter centers on a student who sees her life paralleling Hawthorne’s heroine
Hester Prynne after she pretends to be the school slut in hopes she’ll
benefit from the notion she’s promiscuous. 


Easy A was written by playwright Bert V. Royal and will be directed by Will Gluck (Fired Up).  Stone has certainly come a long way in a short time from The New Partridge Family to infinitely better fare such as Superbad and grabbing spots in the upcoming Zombieland and Sucker Punch.  She’ll next be seen in the Matthew McConaughey / Jennifer Garner film, The Ghosts of Girlfiends Past

Easy A will soon begin filming in Ojai, CA.
