Just in from /Film:

Ellen Page

The horror genre’s nasty feud with Oscar nominees continues, as Juno star Ellen Page has pulled out out of the dark place that is director Sam Raimi’s upcoming horror-thriller Drag Me to Hell. Bloody Disgusting reports that the sweet tart wasn’t happy over the latest draft of the script, which was written by Raimi and his brother Ivan Raimi, but they speculate that this is really “Oscar cold feet.” Page came aboard the film earlier this month.

Alison Lohman to replace Ellen Page in Raimi's 'Drag Me to Hell'

Now that Ellen Page is out of Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me to Hell,” new news has just surfaced that Alison Lohman has taken Page’s place. /Film writes:

Alison Lohman

Blonds tells fewer blog jokes, it’s a fact, so maybe director Sam Raimi is onto something by casting actress Alison Lohman (Beowulf, Flicka) in the lead role formerly occupied by Ellen Page (Juno) in his upcoming horror thriller Drag Me to Hell.

Ellen Page is still in the upcoming new film 'Smart People'

Ellen Page is still in the upcoming new film “Smart People”. I saw the trailer for the film on Thursday night before “City of Men”.

Along with Page, the film also features Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church. Here’s the plotline: “Into the life of a widowed professor comes a new love and an unexpected visit from his adopted brother.”

I was underwhelmed from the trailer, but we’ll see. I’ve embedded the trailer for “Smart People” below. It’s missing Diablo Cody’s punchy writing.

  • 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves

    CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.

  • A Field in England (teaser)

    CHICAGO – I can’t recommend this more. “A Field in England” is a flashback and a flash forward all at once. It’s impossible to watch without thinking of great counter culture cinema. In fact when I saw it at Fantastic Fest 2013 it played as part of a double bill with Ken Russell’s “The Devils” (1971). They made perfect cinematic companion pieces. Russell’s film concerned a wayward priest desperate to protect his 17th century city from corruption in the Church only to fall victim to group hysteria when he is, ironically, accused of witchcraft by a jealous nun.
