Raptress Eve will soon be rolling.

On skates, that is. Eve, who has kept busy with her "Fetish" clothing line since her sitcom was axed two years ago, will bounce back on the big screen soon in playing a roller derby queen in "Whip It" with Drew Barrymore.

The dramedy, which will mark Barrymore's directorial debut, features Eve as a derby diva named Rosa Sparks.

Yes, you read that right.

Adapted from the book "Derby Girl," the film chronicles the life of Shauna "Maggie Mayhem" Cross who played for the Los Angeles Derby Dolls. Joining Eve and Barrymore will be Oscar nominee Ellen Page ("Juno")  and Juliette Lewis. Filming is scheduled to start next spring.
