Ellen Page has dropped out of Sam Raimis supernatural thriller Drag Me to Hell due to scheduling conflicts.
The Ghost House Pictures and Mandate Pictures project was slated to start lensing March 17 in Los Angeles but has been postponed until March 31.
The busy thesp, who had signed a flurry of deals in the wake of her Oscar nomination for Juno, will next star in Mandates psychological thriller Peacock and then segue to Drew Barrymores directorial debut, Whip It, also for Mandate.
We were racing to start production so that we could accommodate Ellens schedule, Ghost House and Mandate said in a joint statement. But like so many other productions trying to start before the potential SAG strike date, this one needed more time, and we had to push back the start of production.
Raimi and his brother Ivan are penning Drag Me to Hell.
