She's played a precocious pregnant teen in Juno, a legitimate superhero in X-Men 3, a wannabe superhero in Super, and a dream architect in Inception, but now Ellen Page is taking on her most challenging role yet: director. Deadline reports the 25-year-old actress is stepping behind the camera to make her directorial debut on a movie called Miss Stevens, and she's secured Scary Movie maven Anna Faris to play the title role. Julia Hart (The Keeping Room) wrote the screenplay, and the film will be produced by Gary Gilbert (Garden State) and Jordan Horowitz (The Kids Are All Right), so Page is in good very hands. Read on!

On the trip, she rediscovers her sense of self-worth through the admiration and humanity of her students. »
