A sequel to the coming-of-age rom-com “Easy A” might finally be in the works more than decade after the movie first premiered. Aly Michalka, who starred as Rhiannon in the film, told E! News “there are talks that there might be a sequel.” She says the reports are “semi-real,” but with a catch.

“It would be kind of like a new retelling but you’d see some of the characters from the original come back into the story,” Michalka said.

That means fans likely wouldn’t see Emma Stone and Penn Badgley return to their roles as Olive Penderghast and Woodchuck Todd.

“Easy A” is an adaption of the classic book “The Scarlet Letter.” The movie follows a clean-cut teen who lies about losing her virginity to her best friend and deals with the aftermath of the rumor spreading across her high school.

A Variety report from 2019 said Bert Royal (who wrote the script for the original) was working on a “spinoff” movie, but it was still in the early development stage. At the time, sources told Variety that “the forthcoming installment will focus on a new group of students and teachers.”

Emma Stone’s role in “Easy A” earned the actress her first Golden Globe nomination in 2011.
