TV watchers probably know Nick Offerman as mustachioed parks department director Ron Swanson on NBC’s Parks & Recreation, but we’re starting to see more of him on the big screen as well. Swanson’s upcoming movie roles include the Sundance hit Smashed and the high profile comedies 21 Jump Street and Casa de mi Padre, as well as two more indies due out later this year. We can now add to the list Lamb of God, Diablo Cody‘s directorial debut.
Cody’s script follows a young woman (Julianne Hough) whose faith is shaken after a horrible plane crash. She ditches her family and church and heads to Las Vegas for a taste of the wild life, encountering all manner of folk (including Russell Brand and Offerman’s Smashed co-star Octavia Spencer) along the way. Offerman’s role has not been revealed at this time. [Deadline]
After the jump, Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler buddy up, while a Black List script lands some stars.
