Diablo Cody’s horror-comedy “Jennifer’s Body” has found its “plain Jane” leading lady — Amanda Seyfriend (“Big Love” and “Veronica Mars”). In the Karyn Kusama film, Seyfriend’s character will have to put the kibosh on her hot best friend, who has turned demonic or some such. High school — it’s such a drag.
Cody’s script centers on Jennifer (Fox), a cheerleader who is possessed by a demon and starts feeding off the boys in a Minnesota farming town. Her bookish best friend Needy (Seyfried) must take drastic measures to protect their town from the seductive teenager and her appetite for high school guys.
Shooting is scheduled for March up in moose country.
