Best Actress Oscar nominee Ellen Page will join 28 Days star Cillian Murphy in the psychological thriller Peacock.

The film reps Page's third project booked in the span of a month. She will next star in Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell and then segue to Peacock before taking on the starring role in "Whip It," Drew Barrymore's directorial debut.

Shooting on Peacock will start in May, according to Variety. The film takes place in a small Nebraskan town and follows a man with split personalities and the woman who holds a key to his past.

"This is one of the boldest screenplays I've come across in my albeit short career," Page said. "It's a character and story I can throw myself into and exactly the type of movie I love to be part of."
