Ellen Page is to make her directorial debut with Miss Stevens, starring Anna Faris as a teacher chaperoning a mob of high school students to a state drama competition. Page, 25, cut her acting teeth on Hard Candy and Juno before co-starring in Inception in 2010.

Faris can be seen in I Give It a Year, the British romcom that opens this week, having made her name on The House Bunny and The Dictator.

Meanwhile, Melissa McCarthy, who enjoyed a breakout role on Bridesmaids and cameos in next week's This is 40, is in negotiations to direct Tammy, a raunchy comedy in which she's also star, alongside husband Ben Falcone.
