Wondering why you’ve been seeing Drew Barrymore on covers and the like? Well, she’s got a brand spankin’ new movie called Whip It that she has produced, directed AND starred in. Pretty impressive to say the least, but is the film worth seeing? That surely depends on if you are interested in learning more about the crazy world of women’s roller derby. Barrymore covers VS Magazine and poses for some photos with her co-stars of her new flick.
According to Radar Online, most of the footage was shot in Michigan and to make things even more interesting, Barrymore plans on promoting her movie at the Bonaventure Skating Center in Farmington, Hills on Sept.11. So be there or be square if you’d like to see Drew and her peeps and have the chance to lace up your skates along with the actress.
Apparently the flick is based on a true story about the Texas Roller Derby league. Along for the ride are Barrymore’s co-star Juliette Lewis, Ellen Page and Zoe Bell.
