Julianne Hough has more ‘Time’ with Cody

Actress attached to star in romantic dramedy

Having wrapped the lead role in Diablo Cody’s untitled directorial debut, Julianne Hough is now attached to star in the Cody-scripted romantic dramedy “Time and a Half,” which Ol Parker is directing for Groundswell Prods. and Mad Chance Prods.

Hough will play a recent college grad who takes a temp job at a trophy store where she runs into her sister’s high school boyfriend with whom she had a one-night stand.

Groundswell principal Michael London is producing with Andrew Lazar of Mad Chance. The filmmakers are currently casting the role of the protag’s sister, and the project won’t move forward until they find the right actress to compliment Hough.

Should the elements come together, production wouldn’t start until next year.

Groundswell recently produced “Lola Versus” and is currently shooting Naomi Foner’s “Very Good Girls.” Mad Chance is in pre-production on “Parental Guidance Suggested” and “Fellini Black and White.”

Since breaking out on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” Hough has been quick to establish herself as an actress, landing lead roles in a trio of music-themed pics — Screen Gems’ “Burlesque,” Paramount’s “Footloose” and New Line’s “Rock of Ages.” She’s currently filming Relativity’s adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel “Safe Haven” and will next be seen playing against type as a burn victim opposite Russell Brand in Cody’s Mandate Pictures-produced comedy formerly known as “Lamb of God.”

Hough is repped by CAA and Azoff, Geary, Paul, Smith Management.
