Ellen Degeneres will be playing a very interesting role in a new movie. She’s just signed on to play Mother Nature in a new comedy by Walden Media called….Mother Nature!
The film will feature Ellen’s character returning to the planet for the first time since creation. Yikes! We wouldn’t want to be around her when she see how much humans have messed with a good thing! The film is being written by Sex And The City writer Jenny Bicks.
Ellen says of her new role, "I'm so excited to be playing Mother Nature. I've always wanted to control the weather. Nothing will stop me from doing this ... neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet ... I may be thinking of the postal service. But, I'm really excited about the movie.”
And Walden Media couldn’t be happier about having Ellen on board. They said in a statement, "We are thrilled to be working with such a beloved entertainer. The project is designed to capitalize on Ellen's unique voice, her skills as a physical comedienne, and her ability to connect with an audience.”
The film is reportedly being fast-tracked to shoot this summer so it’s in conjunction with Ellen’s hiatus from her talk show.
