An upsetting news came from the upcoming horror thriller film "Drag Me to Hell". According to latest reports, the young star of "Juno" Ellen Page has dropped out from the Sam Raimi's newest feature film project.

Bloody-Disgusting reported that the 21-year-old actress has quit the project because she "didn't like the latest draft of the script". However, MoviesOnline claimed that according to a joint statement from Ghost House Pictures and Mandate Pictures, the Canadian actress is no longer available for the project due to scheduling conflicts. The statement read, "We were racing to start production so that we could accommodate Ellen's schedule. But like so many other productions trying to start before the potential SAG strike date, this one needed more time and we had to push back the start of production."

"Hell" is a horror film developed by Raimi with his brother Ivan Raimi. It tells the story about a woman who unsuspectedly hosts a supernatural curse. The filming is originally scheduled to be started on March 17 in Los Angeles, but due to Page's departure, it is now unclear whether the shooting will be done on schedule or not.
