'Juno' writer's next project: horror film

Posted on


Dc_l Have two women ever taken on the writing/directing roles for a horror movie centering on a possessed cheerleader? Well, now they are: Karyn Kusama (Aeon Flux, Girlfight) is in negotiations to direct the horror script Jennifer’s Body, written by Juno scribe (and new EW columnist) Diablo Cody (pictured), for Fox Atomic. The movie, to be produced by Juno director Jason Reitman, centers on a gorgeous cheerleader (Transformers‘ Megan Fox) who becomes possessed by a demon force and her bookish best friend must go to drastic measures to protect the small town from the teenager’s insatiable appetite for high school boys. Go get ’em, girls!
