Julianne Hough, Russell Brand Join Diablo Cody’s Directorial Debut

Some more info on Lamb of God, the Christian-girl-gone-bad-in-Vegas movie that Cody will direct next spring: It will star Footloose by way of Dancing With the Stars actress Julianne Hough as the Vegas newbie, and Russell Brand as the “unlikely” friend who helps broaden her horizons. (We don’t think that’s meant romantically, but then again — Vegas.) Crucial question: Does Hough's buddy from the new Footloose show up at any point to yell "This is our time"? Like, say, right before everyone hits the strip club? It's not too late for rewrites. [Deadline]
