"Into the Forest" centers on two sisters struggling to survive following the collapse of society in the not-too-distant future. 

Page, who tweets at @EllenPage, recently starred in Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's "The East" as an eco-terrorist; she has "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in the pipeline, as well as being attached to Fox's "Queen and Country," adapted from the Greg Rucka comic book series. Wood has "Charlie Countryman" coming up (trailer here), where she stars opposite Shia LaBeouf in a Euro-set thriller.
