Emma Stone has signed on to star in a modern day retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter titled Easy A. According to Variety, Will Gluck will direct this high school comedy.

New York playwright Bert V. Royal penned the script, which follows the plight of a high school senior whose life seems to be paralleling that of Hester Prynne. The teen girl pretends to be the school slut in hopes that her behavior will attract the attention of a suitor, but her plan soon backfires.

Easy A begins filming this month in Ojai, California.
