Superbad Actress Gets Superbadder

Emma Stone -- who is still not quite drinking age -- is kind of everywhere these days. She seems to be the one female (besides Apatow's wife) that has come out of the Apatow factory with a solidly burgeoning career. In addition to Superbad, she was in the awful House Bunny and the atrocious, The Rocker, and will next appear in the hilarible McConaughey rom-com Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. But after paying her dues, her roles pick up decidedly over the next couple of years, as she's starring in a Ryan Reynolds indie, The Paper Man, a zombie flick Zombieland, and Zack Snyder's next project, Sucker Punch.

Well, add Easy A to her resume. She just signed on to play the lead in a modern retelling of The Scarlett Letter set in high school. It worked for Heath Ledger and Julie Stiles in 10 Things I Hate About You (one of the better teen comedies of the last decade), although there's a slight variation on this concept. In the script, Stone's character begins to notice that her life is running parallel to Hester Prynne's after she pretends to be the school slut, in an effort to parlay that into high-school popularity.

One potential drawback: Will Gluck will be directing. He directed Fired Up, a hyper-fueled male cheerleader comedy, which actually ... it wasn't that bad, although you'd be hard pressed to square that with my review. Gluck, however, is also responsible writing/producing "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," so he gets another shot.

Plus, Emma Stone as a slut, although it's her voice I'm a little in love with (it's got that Kathleen Turner sultriness).
