Curiously, "Easy A" screenwriter Bert V. Royal has not been invited to join them, with Gluck handling the writing duties this time around.
Gluck's first screenplay to be produced, "Friends With Benefits," starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis as the FWBs in question, comes out July 22. The trailer arrived online about a week ago, and was promising, if not game-changing.
"Easy A" was exceptionally good film, with a great star turn from Stone buttressed by several outstanding supporting performances from the likes of Patricia Clarkson, Stanly Tucci , Thomas Haden Church and Lisa Kudrow.
Stone can next be seen April 22 in "Crazy, Stupid, Love," starring Steve Carell as a fathering navigating his relationship with his kids while going through a marital crisis. The film co-stars Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon.
