OFFICIAL: Ellen Page Drops Out of ‘Drag Me to Hell’

We have confirmed this afternoon that young Oscar nominated star Ellen Page (Juno, Hard Candy) has dropped out of Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell and that they are currently re-casting the role. We’re told that “she didn’t like the latest draft of the script,” which I’m sure is completely BS – I bet this is just a case of “I almost won an Oscar cold feet”. Good riddance I say. Universal’s film, which will be directed by Sam Raimi, is a morality tale about the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse.
