Although this year saw the cancelation of Diablo Cody's award-winning show United States of Tara, the writer will soon have another feather to add to her cap as she is set to make her directorial debut in a Christmas-themed flick.
Holy shit, indeed. Lamb of God follows a woman who loses her faith after a plane crash. She then rediscovers her religious beliefs through living it up and indulging in debauchery in Sin CIty, a.k.a. Las Vegas. Given her past efforts, which have contained a heaping spoonful of cynicism, the movie sounds downright uplifting.
Meanwhile, Cody's Young Adult, which filmed a few scenes in Minneapolis and stars Charlize Theron, is to be released later this year.
