The new movie Whip It is based on Shauna Cross’ novel Derby Girl, about a teenager who secretly joins a Texas roller-derby team.

Here Shauna Cross– herself a roller derby vet– talks about Whip it and becoming a screenwriter.

In Georgia we have the Atlanta Rollergirls (one of them was a stunt double in the movie), Savannah Derby Devils, and Classic City Rollergirls (Athens). Nearby in Florida are the Jacksonville Rollergirls (aka First Coast Fatales) and Tallahassee Rollergirls.

Here’s the official site for Whip It, but before you click, kids, know that it is LOUD.
