    Ellen Page, known for taking edgy, daring roles, is set to star in Freeheld, a drama about New Jersey-based car mechanic Stacie Andree. The story centers on Andree and her girlfriend, police detective Laurel Hester. The duo fought to secure Hester's pension benefits after she was diagnosed with a terminal disease. Page will step into Andree's soiled work boots. No word yet on who will play Hester.

    The feature-length film will be based on Cynthia Wade's award-winning short documentary on this very subject. It nabbed the Academy Award for Best Short Documentary in 2008.
