there's life after twilight?

from perez hilton:
Keep it together tweens, but if there was ever a movie tailored just for you, Easy A is it!

A high-school retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, the flick has landed itself one hell of a good looking cast. Twilight baddie Cam Gigandet and Gossip Girl cutie Penn Badgley will be the resident hotties of the film working alongside the likes of Lisa Kudrow, Alyson Michalka, Amanda Bynes, and the leading lady, Emma Stone.

Other than Emma, none of the actor's roles have been revealed, but the script is said to take a comedic and modern stab at the Hawthorne classic. Emma will play a student who is ostracized thanks to a vicious rumor about her reputation with the guys. She decides to use the rumor mill to her advantage and "pits puritanical students and teachers against their liberal, free-lovin’ counterparts."
from hollywood reporter:
The Liberty Media studio has signed up for a modern take on "Hamlet" and attached a slew of big names to pull off the task.

"Twilight" and "thirteen" director Catherine Hardwicke is attached to direct, with Emile Hirsch, who helped conceive the idea, attached to star as the title character.

Ron Nyswaner, best known for penning Oscar winner "Philadelphia," will write the script.

"Milk" producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen will produce via their Jinks/Cohen banner.

The company said it is awaiting a finished script in the coming months and hopes to go into production not long after.

The new "Hamlet" will center on similar themes as the original play but will be set in contemporary America. In the new version, a young man must decide whether to kill his uncle to avenge the death of his father.
