Ellen Page could soon be heading to The East with Alexander Skarsgard.
The Inception star is said to have taken one of the lead roles in the eco-terrorism thriller, playing the former lover of Alexander's character, reported Variety.
Felicity Jones and Evan Rachel Wood had previously been linked to the role.
Brit Marling, who co-wrote the film with director Zal Batmanglij, has been cast as an undercover agent who infiltrated an eco-terrorist group, only to fall for their leader (Alexander).
Since breaking out in Juno, Ellen - who - has been filming Woody Allen's new film Bop Decameron in Italy - has had roles in Smart People, Drew Barrymore's directorial debut Whip It and Christopher Nolan's Inception.
