We need all the good women directors we can get. Oscar original screenplay winner Diablo Cody is jumping into directing via old partners Mandate Pictures and producer Mason Novick, who backed Juno ($227 million worldwide) and the upcoming Paramount film Young Adult. Comedy Lamb of God tracks a conservative religious woman from a plane crash through a sinner's life in Vegas and back to faith. Cody will exec produce along with Mandate president Nathan Kahane; they're planning to start casting.

Cody's other ventures include scripting feminist horror flick Jennifer's Body, starring Megan Fox, the Cher musical Burlesque, and Showtime series The United States of Tara, starring Toni Collette. She also hosts and produces the interview web series Red Band Trailer.

    I'm not sure just what -- if anything -- Cody had to do with BURLESQUE.
