Lamb of God Russell Brand
Wednesday 03 August 2011
Russell Brand is set to star in 'Lamb of God'.
The British funnyman is being lined up for one of the lead roles in the comedy drama, which is being directed by Diablo Cody, who wrote 'Juno' and 'Jennifer's Body'.
The film tells the story of a young conservative religious woman who loses her faith following a crash. As she recovers from serious burns, she heads to Las Vegas to indulge in a life she's always been warned against. However, she soon finds herself set on a path back to her beliefs.
During her time in Vegas, the woman befriends both a craps dealer and a bartender named William, the role Brand is being lined up for. Although it is not confirmed who will play the main female character, Julianne Hough - who appears with Brand in 'Rock of Ages' - is said to be one of the favourites.
Brand was last seen on the big-screen in the remake of 'Arthur', while he provided one of the voices in hit animation 'Hop'.
