Ellen Page Attached to Star in Adaptation of Low-Key Apocalypse Novel Into The Forest
by Brendan Bettinger | Posted: January 9th, 2013 at 8:31 pm

Right now, Ellen Page is likely preparing for a big Sundance, as she has Touchy Feely and The East set to premiere at the festival later this month. Meanwhile, another interesting project has surfaced on her horizon: Variety’s Jeff Sneider tweeted that Page is attached to Into the Forest, an adaptation of the novel by Jean Hegland. Into the Forest is a post-apocalyptic story, but on a smaller scale than “post-apocalyptic” usually connotes. Two teenage sisters live alone in a remote part of the Northern California forest, miles away from any neighbor, when society unexpectedly collapses: “There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found.” The sisters are left to hope the power eventually returns as their supplies dwindle.

It’s too bad that Page, almost 26, is still playing teenagers. (They could age the character up, but it seems crucial that two teenagers live alone.) But the intimate premise sounds worth the effort, adding another layer to the post-apocalyptic stories that I love so much. Read the book synopsis after the break.
Set in the near-future, Into the Forest is a powerfully imagined novel that focuses on the relationship between two teenage sisters living alone in their Northern California forest home.

Over 30 miles from the nearest town, and several miles away from their nearest neighbor, Nell and Eva struggle to survive as society begins to decay and collapse around them. No single event precedes society’s fall. There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found. The sisters consume the resources left in the house, waiting for the power to return. Their arrival into adulthood, however, forces them to reexamine their place in the world and their relationship to the land and each other. [Amazon]

No, but since not many actors will be required for this indie-project, I expect production to start in the next few months. A premiere in the second half of 2014 (at the next TIFF for example) is absolutely thinkable.

Update - 11/18/2013

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has stated in a recent interview with "We Got This Covered" that filming will start next year. She also confirmed that her character will be the girl who does ballet - as I've assumed it in the latest news article.

For some reason, I find it difficult to imagine Ellen as a ballet dancer, haha.

No need for it, she will be playing the sister that isn't dancing. :)

Well, you never know. Could you imagine Gerard Butler singing The Phantom of the Opera? :D

I haven't read the book, but it sounds like this could be a movie with a dense atmosphere. Alone in the forest, far away from other persons, running out of supplies and no one knows what is going on.

Yeah, I know, and I think it suits her better. :) It's just that I can't really picture Ellen dancing ballet, haha. However, I believe she would be great playing the dancer one as well, as she always is. :D

Yes, it could. I hope it turns out to be a great movie. I trust Ellen to do her part. I wish her luck as a producer as well. :totalhappy:

Finished the novel yesterday. It is not exactly what I thought it would be, but it really enjoyed reading it.
It is the first time I read the book before I've seen the movie adaption. Let's see how it turns out.

Are there any news on the rest of the cast? I wonder who will play the father of Eva and Nell.

Aside from Ellen looking gorgeous (as always), I wonder about the contents of the trunk.

Fuel, candles, cans of food makes sense. Maybe the salt is for preserving fresh food?
