Page will play the the role of shy, insecure Vanya, the black sheep of the family.

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. She's the only one of her adopted siblings with no superpowers. To sweeten the deal, Fargo's Steve Blackman will be serving as executive producer and showrunner, working from a pilot script by Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist). The 10-episode series now does not have a release date but is expected to launch sometime in 2018. 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.

Ellen Page will lead the cast of "The Umbrella Academy", Netflix's live-action adaptation of Gerard Way's graphic novel series of the same name.

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.
