Will Gluck to direct ‘Easy A’

Screen Gems comedy retells 'Scarlet Letter'

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.

Gluck, who just finished directing the Screen Gems comedy “Fired Up,” will do a polish to the script, bought by Screen Gems topper Clint Culpepper as a spec (Daily Variety, Aug. 14).

“This is the sharpest, funniest script I have read in a long time,” said Gluck, who also recently co-created and exec produced the 20th Television series “The Loop.”

“Fired Up” will be released March 20.
