Amanda Bynes begins two-pic pact

Actress signs deal with Screen Gems

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

The thesp 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.

Culpepper said that Bynes, who gained fame as star of Nickelodeon’s “The Amanda Show,” has been on his radar for some time.

“She’s one of the few who can make that graceful transition from kid to adult star because she has such strong comic chops,” Culpepper said.

Scripted 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. Zanne Devine and Gluck are producing.
