‘Juno’ star Ellen Page joins Woody Allen’s ‘Rome’ movie

She will star alongside Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz and Jesse Eisenberg

Ellen Page has signed on to star in Woody Allen‘s next film, it has been revealed.

As previously reported, the legendary film-maker will shoot his next project on location in Rome. Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg and Penelope Cruz have already been announced as members of the cast.

Now, Juno and X-Men star Page has become the latest name attached to the project, according to Deadline.com. She will next be seen opposite Rainn Wilson in the James Gunn comedy Super as a psychopath superhero sidekick.

Allen has described the new film as a “love letter” to the city, saying: “I love these sophisticated and civilized metropolises. Each time it’s been like writing a love letter to these places and projecting my feelings for them on the screen. I hope to be able to do the same with Rome.”
