A new Page in the Laurel Hester story: Confirmed

by Jeremy Hooper

200812191708And now, confirmation of something we first told you about on 12/19/2008 (at the time, based on an interview from "Gay USA"):

CANNES -- Endgame Entertainment is developing a dramatic feature based on Cynthia Wade's award-winning short documentary "Freeheld," with Ellen Page set to star.

Ron Nyswaner, an Oscar nominee for "Philadelphia," is writing the screenplay based on the true story of New Jersey car mechanic Stacie Andree, who'll be played by Page, and her police detective girlfriend Laurel Hester, who both battled to secure Hester's pension benefits after she was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

We already want to know who's going to play Hester. GLAAD already wants to know if Ellen would prefer the pasta or the fish course for her inevitable awards show feting.
