Russell Brand And Julianne Hough Surface On The Set Of Their New Film In New Orleans


Pics have emerged today of Russell Brand and Julianne Hough, Ryan Seacrest’s gf, on the set of their new film in New Orleans. The photos were snapped last night of the two of them filming and playing around while filming scenes for the new movie. The film hasn’t yet been named but Diablo Cody is at the helm as both writer and director. The film also stars the majestic, Octavia Spencer but she doesn’t feature in these pics. Russell can be seen carrying crutches and what looks like a red bowling ball (?) while Julianne is wearing an “I Love Las Vegas” t-shirt. Looks like fun. It should hit theaters sometime in 2013.

A couple of weeks back we heard that Diablo Cody was working on the concept of a Sweet Valley High musical film. She is one busy lady! This story is about a young woman who has an epiphany and loses her faith after surviving a tragic plane crash. She decides to head to Las Vegas to spice up her life. On the way she meets Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer’s characters, and then the fun begins.

It looks like they’re having a lot of fun on the set in New Orleans so I’m guessing the film is pretty raucous and hilarious too. I am a big Diablo Cody fan ever since Juno so I’m looking forward to this one next year. I’m keen too to see what character Octavia plays…

Check out the fun pics from last night’s filming.



    Julianne Hough has really grown on me.

    I adore Russell Brand, so it was probably a foregone conclusion I would see this movie anyway, but I HAVE to now that I have seen the oddest casting imaginable. Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, and Octavia Spencer? I cannot even imagine, LOL!

      Agree entirely. Love him, but such a weird mix…seems forced.
