Russell Brand is in talks for the lead male role of William in Mandate Picture's Lamb of God, which serves as Diablo Cody's directorial debut.

"The comedy follows a young conservative religious woman who loses her faith after a plane crash, decides to go to Las Vegas to live the life of a sinner, and on her journey finds her way back to her faith."

Dancing with the Stars dancer Julianne Hough is being eyed for the female lead role.
