Here’s some New clips, the offical trailer and a behind the scene featurette of Drew Barry More’s directoral debut movie WHIP IT.
Movie Stars Ellen Page as Bliss , an indie-rock loving misfit finds a way of dealing with her small-town misery after she discovers a roller derby league in nearby Austin, Texas. This comedy stars the director herself Drew Barrymore along with Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis and Alia Shawkat.
The movie is based on a novel called “Derby Girl” by Shauna Cross who actually wrote the screenplay version as well and the movie will be released by Fox Searchlight. This is not my cup of tea but I think if you like the genre of movies like Adventureland (out in Uk Tomorrow), Ghostworld I think you’ll like this.
Looking early 2010 for this to be released in UK possibly slightly earlier, but the movie will be out in USA October 2nd.
*UPDATE* Whip It is part of the Glasgow Film Festval and is playing on the 26th and 27th February, a UK Premiere*
