By Daniel S Levine,

Ellen Page is going behind the camera. The Inception actress will direct her first film, Miss Stevens, which will star Anna Faris.

Faris is set to star as a teacher who chaperones a trip with high schoolers. Her life is a mess when the trip starts, but by the end, she rediscovers her self-worth thanks to her work with the students.

According to Deadline, the film was written by Julia Hart (The Keeping Room). Gilbert Films (The Kids Are All Right) and Anonymous Content (Winter’s Bone) are producing.

Indiewire notes that the project will probably be on hold for awhile, since both actresses are busy at the moment. Page is set to star in X-Men: Days of Future Past which starts filming soon and Faris recently booked a TV gig on Chuck Lorre’s CBS pilot Mom.

Page also recently completed The East, which was shown at Sundance, and will also film Freeheld. She recently starred in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love and was nominated for an Oscar for Juno.

Faris will also be seen in the upcoming I Give It A Year.
