Drew Barrymore, Zoe Bell, Ellen Page and Juliette Lewis are ready to Whip It!

Drew Barrymore is directing and starring in Whip It! It is based around the world of roller derby and also stars Ellen Page, Juliette Lewis, Kristen Wiig, and Zoe Bell. USA Today had these photos
It is a a coming-of-age story starring Juno's Ellen Page as a teenage girl who rebels against her beauty-pageant-obsessed mother (Marcia Gay Harden) and boring Texas town by joining the rough-and-tumble world of roller derby under the name Babe Ruthless.
Barrymore plays Smashley, and Saturday Night Live's Kristen Wiig is Maggie, her sister in arms on the local Hurl Scouts derby team. It gets its name from the members' green faux-Girl Scout uniforms, complete with merit badges for kicking butt.
The film co-stars Jimmy Fallon as the derby announcer and Juliette Lewis as the leader of rival derby team The Holy Rollers, who finds out a secret that could force her tiny new foe from the competition.
