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"?
