Ellen Page (The East, Juno, X-Men) is set to produce and star opposite Evan Rachel Wood (Mildred Pierce, Thirteen) in the film adaptation of Jean Hegland’s novel of the same name, Into the Forest. Patricia Rozema (Grey Gardens, Mansfield Park) will direct the feature film from her adapted screenplay.
Into the Forest recounts the story of two sisters (Page and Wood) struggling to survive after the collapse of society in the not too distant future.
In addition to Ellen Page, Kelly Bush Novak and Sriram Das are set to produce. Haroon (Boon) Saleem will serve as executive producer and Kristina Sorensen as associate producer.
