Zanne Devine to produce Bert V. Royal's spec

Screen Gems has acquired “Easy A,” a spec script written by playwright Bert V. Royal.

Purchase is just the latest in a series for the label, which is aiming to broaden from genre to specialty films.

Zanne Devine will produce.

Spec tells the story of a good-natured high school student who uses the school rumor mill to financial and personal advantage by pretending to be the school slut.
