“Easy A” Writer To Pen A Spin-Off Film

Easy A Writer To Pen A Spin Off Film

A decade after the Emma Stone-led coming-of-age comedy “Easy A” opened in cinemas to both critical acclaim and commercial success, a spinoff is reportedly in the works.

Will Gluck directed the 2010 teen comedy about a clean-cut high school student who relies on the school’s rumor mill to advance her social standing.

Screen Gems has reportedly appointed Bert Royal, who penned the first film’s script, to write and direct the upcoming follow-up which is still in early development with the script still being penned. The spinoff will serve as Royal’s directorial debut.

The new film will be set at the same high school and will explore many of the same themes as the original. However Stone is unlikely to return for the follow-up with the film to focus on a new group of students and teachers.
