The Diablo Cody drama also stars Russell Brand and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer who are pleased to introduce Hough to a life of a sinner.
One particular moment has completely changed Julianne Hough and turned her into a rookie sinner. At least this is what is going to happen to the 25-year-old beauty in her latest movie "Paradise", an upcoming drama that is directed and written by first-time director Diablo Cody, best known for writing the coming-of-age pic "Juno" starring Ellen Page and Michael Cera.
As seen in the first trailer, Hough's character sheds her conservative, religious image post-a plane crash. She goes solo to the Sin City just to experience "worldly pleasures" she's never had before. With the help of her new friends she meets at a bar, the girl has her first shot of alcohol, first ink on her skin, first short skirt she has ever worn and many first things that remain to be seen in the movie.
The movie, which marks the second pic in which Hough stars as a lead, is also supported by some other famous figures in Hollywood, including Russell Brand and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, who stars opposite Michael B. Jordan in the critically-acclaimed "Fruitvale Station".
Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman are tapped to play Hough's on-screen mom and dad respectively. Sarah Colonna is included for a minor role. "Paradise" will premiere on DirecTV August 8 and later hit limited theaters on October 18.
