    Drew Barrymore is set to make her directorial debut with Whip It!, a comedy about the world of female roller derby. In addition to directing, Barrymore will also star in the flick.

    Barrymore has assembled a top-notch cast of female comedic talent for the flick, including Ellen Page, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, Kristen Wiig, and Marcia Gay Harden. Barrymore and Page will play derby teammates, with Harden portraying Page's mother, who hates seeing her daughter on skates. Lewis, Bell, and Wiig will all play derby "grrls."

    Mandate Pictures will release the film, which begins shooting this summer in both Michigan and Texas.
