Despite roles in blockbusters like “Prometheus,” “Thor” and “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba still hasn’t had that one role that would catapult him into a household name—sorry, “The Wire” doesn’t count—but he’ll be getting his shot at the spotlight with the previously-announced action vehicle “Bastille Day.”

Well, here's reminder in case you forgot about this one — it's been a few years. Way back in 2010, Ellen Page signed up to star in the feature film adaptation of the Oscar winning documentary short "Freeheld," with Peter Sollett ("Raising Victor Vargas," "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist") coming on to direct in 2012. And then nothing was heard of the project again, but today two big names are kicking it back to life.

We can't say we remember "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" all that much, besides how funny Ari Graynor was as the super-drunk friend and how inauthentic the New York geography seemed. But it certainly made an impact on someone, as that film's director, Peter Sollett, has just been hired to helm Ellen Page's based-on-actual-events equal rights drama "Freeheld," as was revealed on screenwriter Ron Nyswaner's website (via The Film Stage).

When “Inception” hit in 2010 most of its major players wasted no time in cashing in on the boost to their profile that it gave them. Leonardo DiCaprio obviously just carried on being a massive star, but the likes of Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard all made some smart career moves that have seen their stars exponentially rise since -- not least by signing on to Nolan’s follow-up, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Someone we haven’t seen of much of though is is the film's Araidne, Ellen Page. Maybe she was put off by the blockbuster experience (as if “X-Men: The Last Stand” wouldn’t have already done that), because instead, she has simply lined up a part in a Woody Allen flick and a couple of other small features including Zal Batmanglij's "The East," rather than follow the same blockbuster path as her castmates.
