Indie fans, listen up!
The screenwriter famous for penning Juno has been given the chance to direct her latest project, Lamb of God.
The holiday flick, to be produced by Mandate Pictures, won't be your typical warm and fuzzy, watch while you drink hot cocoa film. Instead, you'll follow a woman who loses faith in God after a horrific plane crash, but later meets up with him again as a sinful Vegas gal.
Oooh, dark Christmas plot meets indie writer humor. We likey!
Diablo Cody, having collaborated with Mandate before, is super eager to step into that little black chair. The writer states:
If I hear a certain type of music for a scene, I don’t have to shyly suggest it. I can use it. If I picture an actor in a role, I can offer them said role. I’m accustomed to riding shotgun and for the first time, I get to be the Captain and Tennille. Holy shit.
Did ya hear that hipsters? She's gonna pick the soundtrack! Start tumblin!
