Amanda Bynes Gets Two New Films
Starring in Easy A with Emma Stone

03 June 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Amanda Bynes may generally confine herself to unremarkable teen movies but she has some genuine comedy chops, which is why we're rather pleased to hear that she has two films lined up with Screen Gems: first a supporting role in Easy A and secondly a starring vehicle.

Easy A is the high school comedy based (very loosely) on Nathaniel Hawthorne's literary classic The Scarlet Letter, as Emma Stone's student is tortured by a false rumour that she has lost her virginity and decides to exploit the rumour mill for her own benefit. Bynes will play the puritanical high school queen bee.

Secondly Bynes will get her own starring vehicle, but there are no details on that yet. Given that She's The Man is something of a guilty pleasure here, let's hope that her next effort can transition to outright good.
