Juno and Jennifer’s Body screenwriter Diablo Cody will make her directorial debut with Lamb Of God.

A self-discovery comedy, the film follows a young woman who loses her faith after being involved in a plane crash, and decides to head to Vegas to revel in sin.

On the way, she begins to rediscover her faith.

Cody nabbed an Oscar for her distinctively wordy, witty work on Juno, and penned the Lamb script herself. She’ll direct the film for Mandate Pictures.

Mandate president Nathan Kahane says: “Having been in the trenches with Diablo and Mason on Juno and Young Adult, we immediately jumped at the opportunity to partner with them again.

“It’s an honour to be a part of Diablo’s transition as a director.”

      Juno and Jennifer's Body screenwriter. Can see why she's moving into directing. Cause she's s**t at writing.

      Personally I think Ellen Page was the genius behind Juno and I haven't seen Jennifer's Body as I heard it was pretty poor....
