Diablo Cody's Paradise with Julianne Hough

"I've got a heart full of rage, and an L.L. Bean tote bag full of cash. Hello Las Vegas." Time to see if Diablo Cody can direct as well as she writes, which is kind of a controversial statement already, so why not just fire this up and tell us what you think. Juno writer Diablo Cody is making her directorial debut this year with the film Paradise, starring Julianne Hough as a young conservative woman who has a "crisis of faith" and goes to Las Vegas after a plane crash leaves her scarred. This seems like a smart and heartfelt drama, with Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer as her new friends/partners-in-crime in the city. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer for Diablo Cody's Paradise, first found via The Film Stage:

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. Thoughts?

The material is good but it would look better in some more competent hands.

Diablo Cody and Russell Brand together seem like a perfect storm of no thanks.

DO people really like Russel Brand? I have never understood his appeal.

2 problems with this movie: 1 - JH can NOT act......not even a little bit. 2 - JH voice is vomit inducing.

Nick Offerman looks nothing like Nick Offerman.
