Octavia Spencer talks about Diablo Cody film: 'She does not disappoint'

Octavia Spencer, who recently won her first Oscar for her supporting role in "The Help," is already looking ahead to her next film, which marks Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody's directorial debut.

The comedy movie, which is still untitled, stars Julianne Hough of "Dancing With The Stars" and "Rock of Ages" fame as a conservative woman who has a crisis of faith after surviving a plane crash and moves to Las Vegas. Spencer plays a craps dealer, while British actor and comic Russell Brand portrays a bartender.

Cody, who won an Oscar for writing the screenplay of the 2007 film "Juno," is also penning the new film's script, in addition to serving as director for the first time.

"She is one of the most brilliant writers out there and let me tell you, she does not disappoint with this script, either," Spencer, 39, told OnTheRedCarpet.com after the Oscar ceremony on Sunday.
