Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page and Emmy/Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood are set to star in the indie movie “Into the Forest,” which Patricia Rozema (“Grey Gardens”) will direct and adapt from Jean Hegland’s novel of the same name.
Page and Wood will play sisters who struggle to survive after the collapse of society in the not-too-distant future.
Page will produce with Kelly Bush Novak and Sriram Das. Haroon ‘Boon’ Saleem will executive produce, while Kristina Sorensen will serve as as associate producer.
Page recently wrapped “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and is attached to star in “Queen and Country” for Fox. She’s also attached to star and produce “Freeheld,” based on the Oscar-winning documentary. She’s represented by WME, Vie Entertainment and attorney Kevin Yorn.
Wood next stars opposite Shia LaBeouf in “Charlie Countryman” and will soon be seen alongside Justin Long in “A Case of You.” She recently finished filming Andrew Fleming’s 2014 release “Barefoot.” She’s repped by CAA.
Rozema directed “Mansfield Park” and earned an Emmy nomination for co-writing the award-winning HBO movie “Grey Gardens.” She’s repped by CAA.
