Easy A team reunite for new comedy

It sounds like Screen Gems were pretty happy with Easy A’s director/producer Will Gluck and actress Emma Stone because they’ve been given another assignment.

According to Deadline, Gluck will write, direct and produce the upcoming project and Stone, of course, will star. But that’s not all folks, because she’s also been named as the project’s executive producer.

Although details on the new project are being kept under wraps, Screen Gems’ president Clint Culpepper plans to start production next summer when both Gluck and Stone will be free of other current commitments.

Gluck is working on another Screen Gems comedy film, Friends With Benefits, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, set for US release in July next year. Stone should also be done by then with her many current projects which include; a new Warner Bros film called Crazy, Stupid, Love, a DreamWorks adaptation of a Kathryn Stockett bestseller The Help and director Marc Webb’s reboot of Spider-Man in which Stone plays opposite The Social Network’s Andrew Garfield.

Easy A was easi-ly Screen Gems’ best received film to date (having grossed $US65 million worldwide since its September release), so it comes as no surprise that they want the two people responsible back together for another shot at screen success.

Discuss: What do you think about Emma Stone’s move towards the producer’s seat?
