Did you hear that the Academy Award-winning writer of ‘Juno’ (and the writer of ‘Young Adult’), Diablo Cody, is stepping behind the camera for her directorial debut? Julianne Hough and Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer are two of the actors in the project (Octavia’s gift won’t pay for itself ;)), and here they are shooting a scene for the untitled movie.
The Mandate project, which was once titled Lamb of God, follows a young conservative religious woman (Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash, decides to go to Las Vegas to live the life of a sinner, and on her journey finds her way back to her faith. Brand plays her unlikely companion who helps her find herself.
Spencer will play a card dealer who works at the same casino as Brand and wants to help her in her quest for sin.
