'Easy A' Spinoff in the Works

Original writer Bert Royal is currently penning the screenplay.

A spinoff of Easy A — the 2010 cult-favorite teen movie starring Emma Stone — is in the works.

Bert Royal, the screenwriter behind the coming-of-age film, is penning a new script that will be set in the same high school and explore the same themes as Easy A but will follow a new class of students.

The project, which is still in early development at Screen Gems, will be Royal's directorial debut. Producer Zanne Devine is set to return.

Stone starred in the original pic as a clean-cut high school student who takes a cue from her class reading of The Scarlet Letter by taking advantage of the school's rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.

Will Gluck directed Easy A, which took in an impressive $75 million at the box office. The movie also starred Stanley Tucci, Amanda Bynes and Lisa Kudrow.
