Diablo Cody, who rocketed to fame and Oscar glory with her screenplay for the 2007 breakout hit Juno, is set to make her debut as a director with Lamb of God. The comedy, which Cody also scripted, tells the story of a conservative religious woman who begins questioning her beliefs after a plane crash and decides to try out life as a sinner in Las Vegas, only to rediscover her faith again.

Lamb of God will be produced by Mandate Pictures, which also produced Juno and Cody’s next outing as a screenwriter, the upcoming comedy Young Adult — which, like Juno, is being directed by Jason Reitman. Cody’s other writing credits include Showtime’s United States of Tara and the 2009 horror comedy Jennifer’s Body.
