Ellen Page & Evan Rachel Wood Are Taking a Trip 'Into the Forest'

Right now Ellen Page can be seen in video game form in the title Beyond: Two Souls, but the Juno, X-Men: The Last Stand and The East star will enter another sci-fi realm on film. Das Films has announced that Page will produce and star in Into the Forest, an adaptation of Jean Hegland's novel of the same name. In addition, Evan Rachel Wood will also star in the film set in the near-future, following two teenage sisters (Page and Wood) living alone in their Northern California forest home. The book is described as a tale of "hope and despair set in a frighteningly plausible near-future America." More below!
The official synopsis is as follows: "Over 30 miles from the nearest town, and several miles away from their nearest neighbor, Nell and Eva struggle to survive as society begins to decay and collapse around them. No single event precedes society's fall. There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found. The sisters consume the resources left in the house, waiting for the power to return. Their arrival into adulthood, however, forces them to reexamine their place in the world and their relationship to the land and each other." The film doesn't have a studio home yet, and this could end up making the festival run sometime in the future.

these two are waaay too old to believably still be playing high schoolers.

I don't know if Page is.

Ellen Page isn't. Or rather, she doesn't look like it, she has looked about 15 since...she was ACTUALLY 15. She barely aged a day between X-Men: The Last Stand and Inception. She totally still looks like a kid. A lot of that is due to her being short and petite, but still.

Anyone read the book? It's a good read. If the actually follow the novel this is going to be a very controversial movie. Won't say anymore than that.
