Hough, Brand Team For Diablo Cody

“Footloose” actress Julianne Hough and comedian Russell Brand are set to star in the untitled directorial debut of “Juno” and “Jennifer Body’s” scribe Diablo Cody at Mandate Pictures reports Deadline.

Hough will play a sheltered young woman who loses her faith after a plane crash and revels in the decadence of Las Vegas. It’s there she comes upon an unlikely companion who helps her find herself.

Mason Novick will produce. Shooting kicks off in the spring with Lionsgate selling international rights at AFM in November.
