Drew Barrymore's Whip It! Coming in October
According to /Film, Drew Barrymore's directorial debut, Whip It!, finally has a release date through Fox Searchlight, the same studio that released Diablo Cody's Juno. The roller-derby themed film is set to release on Oct. 9.
Earlier last year, Barrymore snagged Juno's Ellen Page to co-star along with Juliette Lewis, Jimmy Fallon, and Eve. The film is based on the book Derby Girl by Shauna Cross, where the blue-haired protagonist Bliss, played by Page, finds a way to deal with her frustrations after she joins a roller derby team in a nearby city.
