Amanda Bynes Signs for Two Screen Gems Pics


Variety says that Screen Gems has made a two-picture deal with Amanda Bynes.

She will first co-star in the Will Gluck-directed comedy Easy A, and she and Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper will then craft a star vehicle for her second project.

Written by playwright Bert V. Royal, Easy A stars Emma Stone as a high school student who is victimized by a false rumor that she lost her virginity, until she exploits the rumor mill for her own benefit and becomes wildly popular. Bynes has signed on to play a puritanical high school queen bee.
