Here is your first look at Julianne Hough in Paradise, the directorial debut from Juno writer Diablo Cody.
The film finds a young woman named Lamb (Hough) who loses her faith after surviving a plane crash. Her new plan involves Las Vegas and an “L.L. Bean tote bag full of cash.”
“To experience worldly pleasures for the first time.”
Lamb gets help from a bartender named William (Russell Brand) and a lovely woman named Loray (Octavia Spencer). Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter play Lamb’s doting parents.
Paradise premieres on DirecTV on Aug. 8 and will open in theaters across the nation Oct. 18.
Must say, this Sin City film looks MUCH better than this one (sorry gentlemen).
In recent Hollywood news, former spouses KATY PERRY and RUSSELL BRAND had an awkward run-in at a Lakers game on Tuesday… and it was probably the first time they’ve been in the same place at the same time for almost a year.
It’s public knowledge that Katy Perry and Russell Brand have been estranged from each other since last December-weeks before Brand filed for divorce right before New Year’s Eve. It is also speculated that the couple’s official split began after the “massive” fight they had just before Christmas, which led to them spending the holidays apart.
And as far as we know, the two haven’t seen each other since… until earlier this week, that is.
Katy and Russell were sort of reunited when they both showed up at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday to watch a Lakers vs. Mavs game. The pop star was with her father, Keith Hudson, and the British comedian with two young boys.
Though they resolutely refused to acknowledge each other’s presence, the former partners were seated almost right across from each other-so they had to work extra hard to avoid eye contact.
