No Hell for young Page

03.01.2008
Newly A-listed youngster Ellen Page was gathering projects like the proverbial rolling snowball, but that avalanche has subsided a bit -- she's suddenly no longer involved with the previously announced DRAG ME TO HELL, director Sam Raimi's anticipated return to his horror roots.

It's a "scheduling conflict", according to Raimi's production company Ghost House: "We were racing to start production so that we could accommodate Ellen's schedule. 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."

But Bloody Disgusting has a different spin on that spin, claiming it was either post-Oscar cold feet, or she had problems with the script (maybe not enough random catchphrases or character quirks, honest to blog, LAWL). Either way, Raimi will be swiftly recasting the part for his movie, described as a "morality tale about the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse."

Page continues to build steam (as both an actress and a curiously pervasive object of desire) with Drew Barrymore's roller derby project and the recently announced thriller PEACOCK, with Cillian Murphy.
Extra Tidbit: Roger Ebert said, "Has there been a better performance this year than Ellen Page's creation of Juno? I don't think so". This was clearly before he saw THERE WILL BE BLOOD.

Hi, Miss Page, I'd like to introduce you to Backlash.

While Backlash loved you insinuating the castration of a pedophile, especially since the film in question did not make millions of dollars, Backlash is insulted that you might make choices which will gain you fame with housewives and that lovely bunch of people referred to as "tweeners."

Backlash would like to alert you that it found you first and instilled in you the confidence to go in search of roles which might offer you a larger
Hi, Miss Page, I'd like to introduce you to Backlash.

While Backlash loved you insinuating the castration of a pedophile, especially since the film in question did not make millions of dollars, Backlash is insulted that you might make choices which will gain you fame with housewives and that lovely bunch of people referred to as "tweeners."

Backlash would like to alert you that it found you first and instilled in you the confidence to go in search of roles which might offer you a larger paycheck.

Backlash is very possessive and becomes personally offended if you wander outside of the realm of which it deems suitable for you.

Heed Backlash closely, Miss Page. Then do whatever the f*ck you want to do anyway. It's what got Backlash's attention in the first place.

Enjoy your millions,

Sincerely,

Zara

Yeah, you're right I have to bitch about everything Mike and Scarfather. That's probably why for the first time in the almost six years I've been a member I'm critiquing something here on JOBLO. Why am I such an asshole, geez.

The constant "fanboying" that occurs in these articles does get annoying after a while. Every article has the author's slant all over it.

And no, this has nothing to do with my opinion of Ellen Page or Juno (though I do enjoy both). This is just something I have

I come to JOBLO to find out the newest in movie news-which it is great at-, not for why the reporter thinks it may or may not suck.

But maybe it's just my bad I guess.

The whinefolk only whine about opinionated writing when it's adverse to THEIR opinion.

Page is a decent actress and if she makes some good career moves, perhaps she can distance herself from the the travesty that was Juno.

I'm sorry, but am I the only one sick of the writers' opinions in every single report? It seems like now each writer cares more about how to show his or her opinion then giving us the straight forward news.

I see dude...

Sorry bud, I wasn't trying to be a smart ass or anything. I understand what you mean and I know a lot of people who find her very overrated.

elderpredator, i agree with you that she makes smart decisions to what movie she picks and has been praised all around, but personally i just dont see what the fuss is about her acting or her looks, but like i said, everyone seems to be praising her, so it might just be me

i dont get why she's a good actress, and I don't find her good looking like a lot of people do
also, can someone please explain to me why people think Raimi is a good director? I've seen almost all of his movies and none of them were good (no, Spider-Man 2 wasn't good)

As another member in that anti-EP club, I'd say this is good news. I honestly have no idea why everyone loves her so much. Ugh.

No offense if you like her, good for you.

AHHH

I don't know if Raimi has that 'Evil Dead' magic. It's been so long. Good for Ellen.

On paper, that movie sounds to be God-awful. Good move for her. No matter what the reason, this is a good move. Everyone really hates on 'Juno' so much. I thought it was good, I had no idea it was that good.

ya.. not being in a Sam Raimi horror flick is actually a good move... (The Grudge and other shitty PG13 horror flicks)!

Besides, she has already been in the scariest flick ever made to any man, Hard Candy, any guy who has seen that flick knows that is perhaps the scariest flick of all time!

Love that Page!

As the leader of the unofficial "We Love EP" club around the ENTIRE world, I feel that Ellen has made an excellent choice cause she's not taking every movie that's thrown at her which is a smart career choice. Good for her!

Rip that Page out!


As leader of the unofficial We Hate EP club around my part of the world, I feel this is excellent!

Besides, the only actor Raimi's ever needed is Bruce... ever.... even in Spider Man.

Put a wig on 'im
