Emma Stone is in discussions to star in Screen Gems' Easy A, a comedic modern reimagining of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. This version would be set in a contemporary high school, with Stone portraying a student who views her life as a parallel to that of disgraced heroine Hester Prynne, the adulterous woman at the book's focus. She pretends to be the school tramp in hopes that her reputation will benefit from the false belief that she's promiscuous. The script was penned by New York-based playwright Bert V. Royal.
Will Gluck is attached to direct. The film will shoot in Ojai, California shortly.
