Whether or not you honest to blog liked Diablo Cody‘s “Juno,” you can’t deny that Ellen Page and Allison Janney are generally great whatever they’re in. The two appeared together again a couple years back in Lynn Shelton‘s “Touchy Feely,” and now they’ve got another project cooking.
Screen Daily reports that Page and Janney will star in “Tallulah.” The feature directorial debut of “Orange Is The New Black” writer Sian Heder follows a woman who rescues a baby from a reckless mother but is accused of kidnapping the child. She pretends the child is hers along with her ex-boyfriend, but a bond is soon formed with the birth mother.
Sounds like a mix of the wacky and serious, and given Heder’s ‘Orange’ background, that probably shouldn’t be a problem. Nor will having Janney and Page in the lead roles. Cameras roll in June.
