It has been reported that English funnyman Russell Brand and Footloose actress Julianne Hough are set to star in the directorial debut from Juno writer Diablo Cody. It will not be the first time that Russell and Julianne have worked together on a movie.
Brand and Hough have already been filming with each other this year for the musical comedy Rock of Ages, which also stars Tom Cruise as a rock star. Production on the, as of yet untitled, Diablo movie is expected to begin in the spring of next year.
The movie is believed to centre around a young woman (Hough) who abandons her faith following a plane crash. She then heads off to Las Vegas to party her troubles away, where she becomes friends with a very unlikely character. The movie is expected to be released in 2013.
