Screenwriters turning directors is not a new phenomenon and it's also something we covered recently in this extensive feature. The latest scribe to give it a whirl is Diablo Cody ("Juno," "Young Adult") with "Paradise" featuring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman and others. After a debut on premium cable and a limited theatrical bow, the film is coming to home video.
Once again focusing on the story of a young woman, "Paradise" tells the story of 21-year-old God-fearing Lamb Mannerheim (Hough), who gets a wake up call after a nearly fatal accident, and heads to Las Vegas to get a taste of temptation. Helping to protect and guide her are a couple of new friends who will accompany her journey through Sin City. And if you dig that premise, are a fan of the talent involved or have seen the film and want to have it for you own, we've got a pretty sweet prize to give a way: a price pack containing a poster and DVD signed by Diablo Cody, Julianne Hough and Octavia Spencer. We've also got Blu-ray copies of the movie as runner-up prizes. How do you win?
Email us your name, address and tell us anywhere you like to go that you consider paradise. Good luck!
"Paradise" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray in stores on November 12th.
Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.
