Cast set to Whip It

06.30.2008

Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell and Marcia Gay Harden have all signed on to co-star with Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore in the upcoming roller derby movie WHIP IT! (exclamation emphasis their's, not mine). Page had previously signed on to star in the film as a young girl who enters the world of roller derby. Harden will play her mother who, after years of trying to get her into beauty pageants, is horrified her daughter is taking up roller derby. Wiig will play Page's skating mentor Malice in Wonderland (that's gonna be awesome to watch). Lewis will play the villainess and local star player Dinah Might (loving these names). Zoe Bell will play another woman moonlighting on the team, Bloody Holly. Barrymore's character doesn't have an awesome nickname yet but soon enough, I'm sure. In addition to starring, Barrymore will make her directorial debut on the comedy, which was written by Shauna Cross (based on her novel of the same name). Filming is scheduled to begin later this summer in Michigan and Texas.

Extra Tidbit: Page dropped out of Sam Raimi's DRAG ME TO HELL to take this role.

Barrymore isn't supposed to be in the movie, just be directing it, from what I've seen.

is that actually a publicity shot from the movie? since the thing hasn't started filming yet I figure it's from something else.
