Diablo Cody’s Directing Debut Takes Octavia Spencer


Octavia Spencer is, according to Variety, up for a role in Diablo Cody’s directing debut, formerly titled Lamb of God.

The comedy, also written by Cody, follows a sheltered young woman (Julianne Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash and decides to go to Las Vegas to experience the wild side of life. On her journey, she meets an unlikely companion (Russell Brand) who inadvertently helps her find her true self.

Spencer, who made a name for herself with this summer’s The Help, would play a Las Vegas card dealer.
