Will Gluck to Direct Easy A


Screen Gems has hired Will Gluck to direct Easy A, a Bert V. Royal-scripted comedy that is a modern retelling of “The Scarlet Letter,” as a high school junior pretends to be the school slut in hopes that she’ll benefit from the notion she’s promiscuous.

Variety says that Gluck, who just finished directing the Screen Gems comedy Fired Up, will do a polish to the script.

“This is the sharpest, funniest script I have read in a long time,” said Gluck.
