Is “Easy A” The Next “Mean Girls”?
Color me excited about the upcoming comedy “Easy A,” starring Emma Stone (from “Superbad,” amongst others). The movie is a modern take on The Scarlet Letter — much like “Clueless” was Amy Heckerling’s loose re-envisioning of Jane Austen’s Emma — about a not-very-popular girl named Olive who decides to use her high school’s rumor mill and a little white lie about losing her v-card to advance her social standing amongst her classmates. Emma Stone is hilarious and relatable, much like Lindsay Lohan was, tear, during her “Mean Girls” days, and “Easy A” looks like it’ll tackle the issues of high school cliques, mean rumors, and virginity loss with the same smart and sarcastic humor. Can’t wait! [via Jezebel]
