Many of us just heard about Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It!, and we already get a trailer! The film stars a young misfit (Ellen Page) from a small town (Bodeen, Texas) who finds solace when she discovers a roller derby league in Austin, Texas. The film, which is set to be released October 9th, also stars Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, Jimmy Fallon and rapper Eve.
Judging by the trailer, Whip It! is going to be a typical high school film but with Barrymore in the director’s chair there is bound to be a little more excitement than you average corny teen drama.
Watch the trailer below:
Page plays a good ex-beauty pageant contestant who rebels and finds her true self in the process which makes watching this typical teen high school film so much more fun.
What do you think, should Drew Barrymore stick to her day job? Or are you excited to see what she has come up with?
