Ellen Page to Star in Freeheld, Based on Oscar-Winning Documentary 2010-05-18 10:00:14

Ellen Page Nabs Herself Some Oscar Bait

I'm not quite sure why Ellen Page signed on for those Cisco commercials, but her latest venture definitely carries more heft. The actress has signed on for Freeheld, a drama based on an Oscar-winning short documentary about a New Jersey car mechanic (Page) who goes to war over pension benefits when her girlfriend is diagnosed with a terminal illness. The project is being adapted by the same screenwriter who penned Philadelphia, which means that we could soon be saying goodbye to Page's baby-faced, snarky teen parts and hello to award season.
