Anna Faris to Lead Ellen Page’s Directorial Debut, ‘Miss Stevens’

Talented comedic actress Anna Faris has just signed on for the lead role in ‘Miss Stevens,’ the directorial debut from Ellen Page.

Deadline reports that actress Ellen Page is making the leap to go behind the camera on her first feature, ‘Miss Stevens,’ and she’s landed funny girl Anna Faris as her leading lady. The film tells the story of a down and out teacher (Faris) who chaperones a group of high school teens to a local drama competition, where they teach her a very important lesson about self-worth.

It sounds a little ‘Bad Teacher’ and a little ‘Young Adult,’ which is okay by us — anything to redeem Faris after the abominable ‘What’s Your Number’ and her recent casting in the new Chuck Lorre sitcom, which left us wondering if her appearance in films like ‘Observe and Report’ and ‘Smiley Face’ were flukes. Faris has a couple of films heading to the big screen this year, including ‘I Give It a Year’ with Rose Byrne, which is premiering at SXSW, and she’s reprising her role in ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.’

Page has been similarly hard at work, with a starring role in the upcoming Brit Marling/Zal Batmanglij thriller ‘The East,’ and she’s going into production on ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ this spring.
