Octavia Spencer "In Talks" To Play Casino Card Dealer In Diablo Cody's Next Project

This just in from Variety….Octavia Spencer is in negotiations to star as a Las Vegas casino card dealer in Oscar winning screenwriter (Juno) Diablo Cody‘s next film. Cody is set to make her directing debut from a script penned by her.

The film, starring Russell Brand and Julianne Hough, revolves around “a sheltered young woman (Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash and goes to Las Vegas, where she meets an unlikely companion (Brand).” Spencer is in talks to “play a casino card dealer on the strip where Brand’s character works.”

Mason Novick will produce the Mandate Pictures film, and Prexy Nathan Kahane will serve as executive producer with Cody. We announced a couple of weeks ago that Spencer is set to co-star as AA sponsor in 1962’s Days of Wine and Roses remake Smashed.
