Diabo Cody to direct Christmas film, plus the return of 'Red Band Trailer'
Cody will be working once again with Mandate Pictures, who backed "Juno" and her upcoming film "Young Adult." On her blog, Cody describes the film as a "nice Christmas story" about "a woman who survives a plane crash and loses her faith in everything." The woman ultimately rediscovers her faith while living a life of lush debauchery in (where else?) Vegas.
Jason Reitman, who directed "Juno" and "Young Adult," warned Cody that the Vegas night shoots will be her greatest challenge as a director.
According to Cody's blog, Reitman said, "The next time you write something for yourself to direct, every scene will take place indoors, during the day, in a neutral location. It'll be like: Interior. Kitchen. Noon."
Cody also recently announced the return of her hilarious web series "Red Band Trailer," in which she interviews celebrities in a trailer. "RED BAND TRAILER is coming back for 10 new episodes. We start shooting next week & go live in September. Really excited to share," she tweeted.
