Ellen Page in Sam Raimi's Horror Flick
Sam Raimi, director of the Spider-Man series, is returning to his roots. His next project is a low-budget horror movie called Drag Me To Hell, and he just picked up current Hollywood "it-girl" Ellen Page to play the lead role.
I'm sure fans of Raimi's will be glad to hear that he actually wrote this script (with his brother, Ivan) back in 1992, so the movie should have the same feel as his early horror flicks like Evil Dead and Army of Darkness. This is also a good chance for Ellen Page to get back into something a little more edgy and avoid being typecast from her success in Juno. Production begins on St. Patrick's Day.
