Having just recently wrapped the starring role in Juno scribe Diablo Cody’s untitled directorial debut, Julianne Hough is now attached to reteam with Cody on the romantic dramedy Time and a Half for Groundswell Productions and Mad Chance Productions. Hough will play a recent college grad who runs into her sister’s high school boyfriend while taking a temp job at a trophy store. To complicate matters, she once had a one-night stand with said high school boyfriend. Cody wrote the script and Ol Parker (Imagine Me & You) is set to direct the pic.
Variety reports that the filmmakers are currently searching for the right actress to play Hough’s sister, and the project won’t go forward until they’ve filled the role. The plan is to start production next year should everything come together. Hough will next be seen in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Safe Haven, which opens next Valentine’s Day.
