Brand and Hough for Cody film?
Russell Brand and his Rock Of Ages co-star Julianne Hough have reportedly signed up to star in Juno writer Diablo Cody's directorial debut.
Footloose actress Julianne will play a young woman who loses her faith after a plane crash and meets an unlikely friend while partying in Las Vegas, according to Deadline.
Production on the film is set to begin in the spring, with Diablo executive producing the as-yet untitled project.
Julianne and Russell have been shooting musical comedy Rock Of Ages, with a star-studded cast which also includes Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Mary J Blige.
Diablo, 33, shot to fame when her script for the 2007 film Juno won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
