Page confirmed for adaptation…

Evan Rachel Wood (‘Charlie Countryman,’ ‘Mildred Pierce’) has closed a deal to star alongside Ellen Page (‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ ‘The East’) in acclaimed writer and director Patricia Rozema’s post-apocalyptic drama ‘Into the Forest.’

Based on Jean Hegland’s 1996 novel, the film recounts the story of two sisters (Page and Wood) struggling to survive after the collapse of society in the not-too-distant future.

Kelly Bush Novak, Sriram Das, and Page will produce the adaptation with Rozema (‘Grey Garden,’ ‘Mansfield Park’) directing from her adapted screenplay. Haroon (Boon) Saleem will executive produce while Kristina Sorensen will serve as associate producer.
