Having conquered the art of the screenplay, Juno-writer Diablo Cody steps behind the camera for the first time with her directorial debut feature Paradise.
Starring Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars, Burlesque), Holly Hunter, Octavia Spencer and Russell Brand, the film tells the tale of a young woman who lets go of her conservative upbringing after surviving a plane crash. Set in Vegas, the once tightly wound woman is set free to the backdrop of attempted alcohol consumption, “extravagant” tattoo art, and the desire to set free her spirit alongside a Vegas bartender (Brand) and a showgirl (Spencer).
The film is set for release later this year.
Just me or does Russell Brand come across as far less annoying than all of his previous roles? May actually be able to sit through an entire Russell Brand film.
