Ellen Page to Headline 'The Umbrella Academy' Netflix Adaptation

The upcoming comic book-based Netflix series Umbrella Academy casts Ellen Page

Netflix just bagged a major star for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Umbrella Academy.

This isn't the first time we've seen Page in a comic book adaptation.

Her siblings, Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus and Number Five, have not been cast yet. But they must work together to solve the mystery of their father's death. Bluegrass Television as well as Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment also executive produce. He started creating "The Umbrella Academy" during downtime on the band's tours. These aren't the usual superheroes, and this series will embrace the singular tone of the graphic novels - dark yet humorous, supernatural yet grounded in reality.

Netflix is bringing another superhero story to life. She's considered the black sheep of an already dysfunctional family, though her help will be needed to find out who murdered her super-powered father.

Ellen Page has been tapped for one of the leads in Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, a live-action series based on the popular graphic novels by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and illustrated by Gabriel Bá.

Are you excited to see Ellen Page in The Umbrella Academy? While Page has plenty of experience with superpowers, having appeared as Kitty Pryde in the X-Men franchise, this new character actually has no powers at all.

Page's recent credits include My Days of Mercy and The Cured, both of which premiered at TIFF this year, and the extremely unfortunate Flatliners remake. Way will serve as a co-executive producer on the series, which will be adapted for television by writer Jeremy Slater who penned the pilot.
