Ellen Page and Cillian Murphy to Star in ‘Peacock’ - SendMeRSS

Ellen Page is on fire! She recently just signed onto star in YET ANOTHER movie! The Oscar-nominated actress will star alongside ‘The Dark Knight’s Cillian Murphy in the upcoming thriller, ‘Peacock.’

Yahoo!News gives us this:

The independently financed film is set in the small town of Peacock, Neb., where a man with a split personality (Murphy) fools the town into believing that his two alter-egos are man and wife. Page will play a struggling young mother who sparks a battle between the personalities.

Hmm…this sounds like a mighty interesting concept for a film. (Kind of reminds me of ‘Glen and Glenda.’) However, I need to comment on the ever rising star power of Miss Ellen Page.  In the past month, I have written 3 articles about her being cast in three different movies. She will be in Drew Barrymore’s ‘Whip it,’ and Sam Raimi’s ‘Drag Me to Hell.’ Even though all three of these films are being produced by Mandate Pictures, no one can deny that the ‘Juno’ star is becoming one of the most sought out actresses in Hollywood.

If she takes home the Oscar next Sunday for best actress, you can pretty much guarantee you will see this actress FAR more than we’ve seen in the last year. (Move over, Sarah Polley!! :P)

Your thoughts?

Depending on how her characters are written in these coming flicks we could see an Ellen Page backlash. Over the next two years we're going to see her in a good handful of movies and while I'm happy for her success I see the potential of everyone continuly comparing her acting to her performance in Juno. Hopefully the movies she's signing on for will not be snarky personalities.
