Kusama to direct Cody’s ‘Body’

Fox Atomic moves forward on thriller

Fox Atomic is setting Karyn Kusama to helm “Jennifer’s Body,” a quirky comedic thriller written by “Juno” scribe Diablo Cody.

Fox Atomic bought the project as a spec in October when buzz had just begun building around “Juno.” The Fox shingle quickly attached “Transformers” star Megan Fox to play a cheerleader in a sleepy town whose perfect life goes haywire when she becomes possessed and begins killing the young men in town who lust after her.

Hard C partners Jason Reitman and Dan Dubiecki will produce with Mason Novick. Reitman directed the Cody-scripted sleeper hit “Juno” for Atomic’s sister company Fox Searchlight.

Kusama directed “Girlfight” and “Aeon Flux.” Shooting begins in early March.
