Ellen Page To Join ‘The East’ With Brit Marling

Posted September 30, 2011 by Max in Film News

According to Variety,

Juno‘ star, Ellen Page, is finalizing talks to join Zal Batmanglij’s thriller “The East“, staring Brit Marling (Another Earth) and Alexander Skarsgard.

‘The East‘ was written by Batmanglij and Marling and is about a private contracting firm tasked with protecting big corporations from radical environmentalists and anti-business extremists, with its agents tasked with infiltrating a mysterious anarchist org known only as the East.

Felicity Jones was originally supposed to fill the shoes of the role Page has taken up,
but, unfortunately, couldn’t commit to the film due to ‘Like Crazy’ press functions. I’m
really interested in seeing Ellen Page opposite Brit Marling, so count this as a win from my
perspective.
