Ellen Page Set To Star in New Sam Raimi Film

11 02 2008

Sam Raimi has another slice of genius for us entitled “Drag Me To Hell”. This news comes from the gentlemen over at /Film:

“Ellen Page has been cast in Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, which Raimi wrote with his brother Ivan. After Spider-Man 3, Raimi has something to prove, and is returning to the genre where he made his name – horror. The director’s long-time collaborator Robert Tapert describes the film as follows: “Sam calls it a ’spook-a-blast,’ a wild ride with all the chills and spills that ‘Evil Dead’ delivered, without relying on the excessive violence of that film.” It’s a morality tale about the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse.

Hell will begin principal photography in Los Angeles on March 17th 2008.”

Sounds great, although I must disagree on the aside about “Spiderman 3”. I thought the film was pure genius. Raimi is awesome and can do no wrong in my book, and Ellen Page has already proven herself worthy in “Hard Candy” and “Juno”.

Ellen Page is not one of my favorite actresses. Actually, I don’t like her at all. Same Raimi is a great director in my opinion, thought I still have very little of hope of this being any good.
