Ellen Page joins Alexander Skarsgard and Brit Marling for The East

09.29.2011

Here's some news on a film I was not aware of. Ellen Page is joining Alexander Skarsgard and Brit Marling for THE EAST.

Zal Batmanglij (SOUND OF MY VOICE) is directing the script that he and Marling wrote together.

The story is about, "a private contracting firm tasked with protecting big corporations from radical environmentalists and anti-business extremists that assigns its best and brightest agent to infiltrate a mysterious anarchist organization known only as 'The East.'"

Variety offered some details on the characters: "Marling stars as the undercover agent, who finds herself falling for the leader of The East, who will be played by Skarsgard. Page will play Izzy, a member of The East who used to be Skarsgard's lover and is now jealous of the attention he pays Marling's character."

LIKE CRAZY's Felicity Jones was initially set to play Izzy but had to drop out of due to press commitments.

I'm clearly in the minority, but find her and amy adams to be the two most annoying actresses out there. With at least amy adams being really really good at what she does.

Alexander Skarsgard is bad ass as anyone who follows True Blood knows. I'm not fond of Ellen Page though. I find most of her characters and the way she portrays them to be extremely irritating. Juno was the absolute worst. This movie sounds pretty intriguing though, so hopefully it'll be decent.

Page is one of those actresses that I'll automatically see in anything, she's just awesome.

I would let her rape me any second, minute, hour, of a day in any week and month in a year.

Sounds great. Might it be somehow cyberpunkish? And I'll watch anything made by somebody named Batmanglij.

Yeah this does sound pretty good but I'm having a hard time picturing a world where the 6'4" Skarsgaard and the 5'1" Page were a couple.

I know a couple more dimensionally opposed than that. The guy is 7' and his wife is...smaller.
