Ellen Page to Star in Gerard Way's 'The Umbrella Academy' Netflix Series

Ellen Page to Star in Gerard Way's 'The Umbrella Academy' Netflix Series

The story follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes known as the Umbrella Academy - Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five - as they work together to solve their father's mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.

The Umbrella Academy: The Apocalypse Suite debuted in 2007, which was followed the next year by the miniseries The Umbrella Academy: Dallas. She's the only one of Reginald Hargreeves' adopted children with no supernatural abilities. A meek and insecure wallflower, Vanya struggles to find her place in the world. Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will serve as showrunner and executive producer alongside Bluegrass Television with Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. The 10-episode drama is set to launch in 2018. "We're excited to see this world and introduce these unforgettable heroes to Netflix members around the globe".

Netflix has cast actor Ellen Page in the lead role of the Umbrella Academy series.

The visual spectacle of the Umbrella Academy as a unit - including a character with a gorilla body, no less - already provides a certain grotesque intrigue to the show.

But after almost a decade of filing paperwork and improving his skin cell production system, De Luca was ready to try. The complicated treatment will not be cheap. "There are very few diseases that have benefitted so far", he said.

This won't be the first superhero project for Page either, who starred as Kitty Pryde in the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand and reprised the role in 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

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

Way, who created and wrote the comic book alongside illustrator Gabriel Bá, will be onboard as an executive producer on the series.
