Diablo Cody is a Reckless Screenwriter

by at . Comments

Diablo Cody understands the movie goers that line up for a cute story about a knocked up teenager might not be the same that buy tickets for a vampire film.

That's why the screenwriter has admitted to The Los Angeles Times that Jennifer's Body is a risky follow-up to Juno. Still, she just couldn't resist the story.

"Juno is a life-affirming movie," Cody said "And this is a death-affirming movie. The people who really loved Juno - I don't know if they will love this in the same way. And the people who hated Juno - well, this will just be more grist for the mill.

"My biggest priority is putting words in women's mouths - it just doesn't happen. Women don't get the good lines. They don't get to do anything. And they don't get to be reckless. And I've always been reckless."
