Ellen Page Scores Her Directorial Debut With 'Miss Stevens'
Ellen Page will soon add the title 'director' to her resume. The 25-year-old "Inception" actress has just nabbed her directorial debut through a project called "Miss Stevens".
Per Variety, the titular character depicter in critically-acclaimed 2007 film "Juno" is set to direct Anna Faris for the project. The wife of Chris Pratt will play a teacher who chaperones a group of high school students to a state drama competition.
Page's project has tapped Julia Hart as the scribe. Set to produce the film are Jordan Horowitz, Gary Gilbert and Doug Wald. No other actors have been tapped to join Faris and it is still unclear when the project will kick off the production.
Page, who is often nominated in some film awards and has made it to Entertainment Weekly's future A-List stars list, will next be seen in indie pic "The East". Her upcoming big project is "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which will begin shooting this spring.
Faris, meanwhile, was last seen in comedy ensemble "Movie 43" and will have her other star-studded comedy film, "I Give It a Year", premiered at the upcoming SXSW Festival.
