Since her Oscar-winning screenplay for 2007’s Juno, Diablo Cody has seen consistent success in Hollywood. In addition to writing the screenplays for Jennifer’s Body and Young Adult, Cody created the Showtime series United States of Tara. Now, having established herself as more than a one-hit writer, Cody is moving into the director’s chair.
Cody has written and directed a movie called Paradise. The movie stars Julianne Hough as a woman named Lamb who survives a plane crash, suffers terrible injuries, and then questions her conservative faith while in Las Vegas. Russell Brand, Nick Offerman, Holly Hunter, and Octavia Spencer also star in the flick.
Not much else is known about Paradise, so today’s new trailer for the movie is a big reveal. It appears as if the movie will be a loss-of-innocence tale crossed with a bucket list/hangover theme, all set in Vegas. The movie is set for an October 18 release in the U.S.
