The Hit Movie ‘Easy A’ Will Be Getting A Sequel

The hit movie ‘Easy A’ was one of the films that helped launch Emma Stone’s career and now in an interview with E! News, Aly Michalka has confirmed that the film will be getting a sequel.

Aly Michalka played Rhiannon, the best friend to Emma Stone’s Olive Penderghast in Easy A. She also shared that while the Easy A audiences have seen was PG-13, the original version was rated R. This isn’t surprising, as the story is based on The Scarlet Letter and deals with themes of sexuality. However, a rated-R teen comedy is a hard sell, and the studio ultimately released the PG-13 version.

While Aly Michalka said she loved the original, she agreed that the rated-R version may not have done as well in theaters. Easy A was a box office success in 2010, earning $75 million at the worldwide box office on an $8 million budget.

The original Easy A is difficult to repeat, so a series today starring her younger brother would a very different project. It will be interesting to see if the project happens, how it might recapture some of that original magic, much of which relied on Emma Stone’s comedy chops. It would also be interesting to see who else signed on for the project, which included actors like Amanda Bynes, Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Lisa Kudrow, Malcolm McDowell, Fred Armisen, and Stanely Tucci.

That’s an impressive cast list with a lot of actors fans would love to see take up their roles again. The success of the project may depend on how many of those comedic actors they could get on board.
