Emma Stone Cast in Modern-Day Scarlet Letter, Titled Easy A

I feel compelled to write about this movie news largely because it's one of the funnier titles I've come across in a while. This modern-day, high school-set re-imagining of The Scarlett Letter just cast Emma Stone in the Hester Prynne-type lead role. And the movie is titled Easy A. Here's more:

Will Gluck is directing the film, which centers on a [high school] student who sees her life paralleling [Nathaniel] Hawthorne’s heroine Hester Prynne after she pretends to be the school slut in hopes she’ll benefit from the notion she’s promiscuous.

Seriously: Easy A! I kind of love it already, especially since it has Emma Stone who consistently delights me in her comedic roles. And maybe it'll be an awesome modern-day high school retelling of a classic work, like 10 Things I Hate About You or Clueless. What do you think of a Scarlet Letter "re-imagining"?

I love Emma Stone and the movie seems fun, but I feel like its not going to have anything to do with The Scarlett Letter and shouldn't try to be affiliated with it.

She's cute, but I'm all set with this movie.

mich, that's funny. I didn't even read the description (I was too distracted by the title), but after I read your comment I did and you're right, it makes no sense. On a side note, my friends and I say "mother of pearl" instead of something more vulgar, and it usually turns in to "Hester Prynne! Mother of Pearl!" :D

I just looked up Emma Stone and was <b>really</b> surprised to see that she's only 20. I was going to comment something along the lines of "That actress is <b>way</b> too old to be playing a high school girl. I look more like a high school girl than she does!"

The storyline as it is explained here has absolutely nothing to do with the original Scarlet Letter. It completely misses the point. Pass.

I sort of think anything has to be better than the uber-boring original.

interesting - i liked the book actually and i think that it could be interesting to see how they adapt the story to fit modern day and be relevant to teens.
