Diablo Cody is 'retired from directing'
Diablo Cody’s not stepping behind the camera anymore: “I am retired from directing,” the screenwriter told The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t think I possess the leadership qualities required to be a director.”
Cody made her directing debut in 2013 with Paradise, a film starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, and Holly Hunter — and it didn’t do quite as well as the films she’s written, which include the more critically popular Juno and Young Adult. It currently has a 21 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
