Russell Brand and Julianne Hough for Diablo Cody’s Lamb of God

Russell Brand and Footloose star Julianne Hough are confirmed to star in Oscar winning screenwriter Diablo Cody’s directorial debut Lamb of God.

According to Deadline, former Dancing With The Stars dancer Hough has scored the lead role, as “a sheltered young woman who loses her faith after a plane crash and revels in the decadence of Las Vegas”.

Brand will play a bartender recovering from addiction, whom Hough’s character befriends in Vegas.

Cody won an Academy Award for writing Juno, and recently re-teamed with that film’s director – Jason Reitman – for Young Adult.

Discuss: Hmm, maybe this Hough girl has some acting chops after all.
