Former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Julianne Hough is slated to star alongside British comedian Russell Brand in Diablo Cody’s still-untitled comedy.

In the film, which Cody wrote and will direct, portrays a young woman who travels to Las Vegas to find herself after a plan crash shakes her religious faith. While Hough takes the primary role, Brand will be depicting the “unlikely companion” she meets along the way.

Hough’s previous acting projects include a lead in the upcoming reboot of ‘Footloose’ and in New Line’s movie adaptation of the hit Broadway show ‘Rock of Ages.’ Brand’s most recent movie was the remake of ‘Arthur,’ which barely grossed more than its production costs.

The new project is set to begin shooting next spring.
