Sequel in the Works for Emma Stone’s ‘Easy A’. The 2010 film Easy A is based on the classic 1850 novel The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Easy A modernizes the story featured in the novel and follows Olive Penderghast who is prompted by her popular best friend to spill details of her boring weekend. Olive (Emma Stone), is a clean-cut teen, who decides to spice things up by telling a little lie about losing her virginity. When the high-school busybody (Amanda Bynes) overhears the conversation and spreads it all over campus, Olive is suddenly notorious but for the wrong reasons.
Interest in a sequel hasn’t been lost on the film’s screenwriter Bert Royal who in recent years shared that there is plenty to be explored should a sequel be picked up by Sony Pictures. Royal shared with Variety back in 2019, “Times have changed quite a bit since I wrote that movie! The term ‘slut-shaming’ wasn’t even in existence when the movie came out, and people were barely texting back then. Now, we’re in this whole new world where people are very open and things that were taboo even 10 years ago are not as taboo now. There’s a lot of fun stuff to explore.”
Emma Stone’s Easy A co-star Aly Michalka recently confirmed that a sequel is in development, telling E! News, “There are talks that there might be a sequel. That actually is semi-real…It would be kind of like a new retelling but you’d see some of the characters from the original come back into the story.”
E! News went on the share that the reported sequel would focus on Olive’s younger and adopted brother Chip Penderghast and be “set at the same high school and will explore many of the same themes as the original.” It is currently unknown who would return for the featured film or if the movie would be released in theaters or via streaming services. This is a developing story, so be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things entertainment!
