Leads confirmed for religious comedy.
Russell Brand (‘Get Him to the Greek’ ‘Arthur’) and Julianne Hough (‘Footloose’) are to top-line the untitled directorial debut of ‘Juno’ scribe Diablo Cody.
The comedy, previously titled ‘Lamb of God,’ follows a sheltered young woman (Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash and decides to go to Las Vegas to experience the wild side of life. On her journey, she meets an unlikely companion (Brand) who inadvertently helps her find her true self.
Cody, who’ll be helming the project from her original screenplay, will also produce alongside Mason Novick (‘500 Days of Summer’) and Nathan Kahane (‘50/50’).
