Russell Brand Offered Lead In Diablo Cody’s LAMB OF GOD

Posted on 03 August 2011 by Rich Drees

The first cast member has been announced for Cody Diablo’s debut feature Lamb Of God and that actor is Russell Brand.

All we know about the film is that it centers on a young woman who heads to Las Vegas to start a life of sin after loosing her faith when she was involved in a plane crash. There’s no word as to what Brand’s character will be, though I would say it would be a pretty easy guess that he will be portraying someone who is flamboyant and outrageous.

Mandate Pictures, who produced Cody’s breakthrough film Juno, will be performing similar duties here.

Since winning the Best Screenplay Academy Award for Juno, Cody has kept herself busy. Her horror film Jennifer’s Body was already in production at the time of her Oscar win. Juno‘s director Jason Reitman is just finishing up work on the pair’s second collaboration Young Adult, about a ghost writer of a popular series of girls young adult novels who returns to her home town to steal her high school sweetheart away from his wife.
