While an awful lot of actors like to direct films, they often wait until they’re in their 30s at least to make the move behind the camera. However Ellen has decided the grand old age of 26 is right for her to make her directorial debut with Miss Stevens.
Deadline reports that Anna Faris is attached to star as a high school teacher who has to look after a group of students when they head to the state drama competition. Julia Hart wrote the screenplay.
It isn’t known when the movie might shoot, but it won’t be for a few months at least, as Page will soon be heading to the set of X-Men: Days Of Future Past. She’s set reprise her role as Kitty Pryde, who’s believed to have a major role in the time-travelling movie, which brings together the First Class cast with the original X-Men.
