Juno, I mean Ellen Page, will make her directorial debut...
Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) is set to make her directorial debut with Miss Stevens, a comedic high school drama.
The film will star Anna Faris (there's your first mistake, Miss Page) as the lead character, a teacher who chaperones a group of high schoolers on a weekend trip to a state drama competition. While chaperoning, Miss Stevens discovers her self-worth through her students.
Julia Hart has written the script. Gary Gilbert, Jordan Horowitz, and Doug Wald will produce the film, while Nicole Romano and Trevor Adley will serve as the executive producers.
Page will also be appearing in the upcoming film The East, and will be shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past later this spring.
