    Aly Michalka Revealed That There "Might Be" A Sequel To "Easy A," And I Just Have Something In My Eye, Like A Twig Or A Branch

    I got a...I got a...I got a...I got a pocket, got a pocket full of sunshine.

    You know Aly Michalka: one half of pop duo Aly & AJ and one of the original cast members of the whip-smart rom-com Easy A (2010).

    If you'll scoot your memory back to 2010, you may remember that Aly was hysterically funny in her role as Rhiannon, aka the best friend of Emma Stone's Olive Penderghast.

    Here's Emma Stone, Penn Badgley (who played Olive's love interest), and Aly at the Easy A premiere in Los Angeles.

    Anyway, Aly recently said that an Easy A sequel "might be" in the works, telling E! News, "There are talks that there might be a sequel. 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."

    Translation: You probably shouldn't expect to see Emma or Penn reprise their roles. 

    Aly's sister, AJ, also chimed in, saying how Rhiannon was "one of my favorite parts Aly's ever played."

    Needless to say, Emma also enjoyed acting in Easy A, which was a hilarious retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 novel The Scarlet Letter.

    "There are so many messages throughout it, but it’s not speaking down to anybody," Emma added at the time. "It’s not a message movie. It’s funny and sweet. I thought Olive was such an amazing character [...] Sometimes you read a character and you think, Oh, I could go a million different ways with this, but that wasn't the case with Olive because she *was*."
