The plot has changed a little since it was last in the trades. Initially, Stone was going to play a student who faked being promiscuous in order to gain attention. Now she’s a student who is ostracized thanks to a false rumor of her behaving badly with the guys, and she decides to use the rumor mill to her advantage. She pits puritanical students and teachers against their liberal, free-lovin’ counterparts. Hilarity and life lessons ensue.
Will Gluck (“Fired Up”) directs, and the script was penned by playwright (and former “Chappelle’s Show” casting assistant apparently) Bert V. Royal, who weaves Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter” into a parallel storyline mimicking Stone’s character. Don’t be surprised if you see see Stone sporting pilgrim gear in dual roles.
Unfortunately for you Twilighters, Variety is silent as to which part Gigandet will be playing. Since the film is set to begin shooting on June 9, you shouldn’t have to wait too long to find out. Still, let’s hope he’s playing a niceguy this time around.
Twilighters, are you now interested in “Easy A” with Cam Gigandet on board? Does it sound like a cool girl-oriented comedy, with or without him? What do you think of the rest of the cast?
