Ruby Rose has replaced Elliot Page in the upcoming esports comedy 1Up, currently in production in Toronto, Canada.
Also joining the film are Taylor Zakhar Perez, Hari Nef, and Nicholas Coombe.
According to THR, the comedy “centers on a young woman named Valerie Lee, who “quits her college esports team, fed up with gaslighting from her male counterparts, and quickly realizes that her decision comes at the cost of her scholarship. But, she discovers a loophole to save her collegiate future: if she can find a coach and assemble a whole new varsity-caliber team capable of reaching the State Finals. Valerie turns to her professor, Parker Nesby, and together with Valerie’s best friend and fellow gamer Sloane, they form and train a rag-tag women’s team committed to taking down the boys that tried to shut them out of gaming in the first place.”
Elliot‘s exit from the movie comes just one day after some major news about his personal life was released.
