Mandate Pictures has announced that Julianne Hough, who will be appearing in the upcoming remake of Footloose, and Russell Brand will be starring in writer Diablo Cody’s directorial feature film debut. Brand’s involvement was already reported last month when he was offered a role in the film.
Although the announcement states that the film is untitled, the project was previously known as Lamb Of God. Perhaps the change is to avoid confusion with Christopher Moore’s similarly-titled satirical novel.
The film, scripted by Cody, concerns a religious woman, presumably Hough, whose survival of a plane crash leads her to question her faith. A trip to Las Vegas results in meeting someone who helps her regain it. I’m guessing that that someone will be Brand’s character.
