Drew Barrymore has chosen Juno star Ellen Page to star in her directorial debut, Whip It! Page will play a beauty pageant contestant who finds herself competing in the roller derby. “I’ve been working toward the goal of directing my entire life,” Barrymore, 32, told Variety. “Whip It! is a story that really spoke to me.” Page, 20, says, “I really admire how Drew constantly challenges herself as an artist. She’s proven herself as an actress and a producer, and I have no doubt she’ll bring great vision and creativity to the director’s chair. I can’t wait to kick ass on wheels!” The movie is set to begin filming in Texas this summer.
