First Look: Burnt Julianne Hough & More in Diablo Cody's 'Paradise'
With film's like Juno, Young Adult and Jennifer's Body in her screenwriting past, Diablo Cody is getting behind the camera for with Paradise (formerly Lamb of God), a film that the director calls, "a non-cynical movie that would inspire positivity." The film follows a nice, young Christian girl (Julianne Hough), who survives a terrible plane crash but has burns on her hands, arms and the left side of her face and neck. With her faith lost, she heads to Las Vegas to enjoy the more sinful side of life and befriends Loray (Octavia Spencer), a craps dealer, and William (Russell Brand), a bartender. Now we have some first look photos below, including an almost unrecognizable Nick Offerman as her conservative, overbearing father. Look!
Here are the first photos from Diablo Cody's Paradise from USA Today:
Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult, Jennifer's Body) writes and directs Paradise, formerly known as Lamb of God. The story follows a young, beautiful, conservative Christian woman (Julianne Hough) who suffers a crisis of faith after a plane crash leaves her with horrific burns. A trip to Vegas sees her exploring the more sinful side of life with colorful characters like a bartender (Russell Brand) and a craps dealer (Octavia Spencer). Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman also star in the film which Image Entertainment will bring to theaters this fall on October 18th, though it might hit festivals in New York and Toronto before then.

Looking forward to this although I am a bit skeptical about her directing. Maybe it's for the best so I have no unrealistic expectations..
