Drew Barrymore To Make Directorial Debut

Drew Barrymore
is an amazing actress and now she has decided to get her feet wet in directing as well. Barrymore will make her directorial debut for the movie Whip It! "I've been working toward the goal of directing my entire life," Barrymore told Variety. "Whip It! is a story that really spoke to me."

Whip It will star one of the most talked about actresses in Hollywood, Juno star Ellen Page.

"I really admire how Drew constantly challenges herself as an artist," Page said. "She's proven herself as an actress and a producer, and I have no doubt she'll bring great vision and creativity to the director's chair. I can't wait to kick ass on wheels!"

The film will start filming in the summer in Texas.
