Julianne Hough has landed the starring role in the Diablo Cody romantic dramedy ‘Time and a Half,’ according to Variety. Production is slated for 2013.

The former pro on ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ set out for Nashville several years ago to pursue a career as a country singer. That quickly morphed into several music-dance film opportunities in ‘Burlesque,’ ‘Footloose’ and ‘Rock of Ages.’

Hough and her partner, ‘American Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest, recently moved into new Beverly Hills digs, previously owned by Ellen DeGeneres.

The petite blonde beauty is currently on location in North Carolina filming the romantic thriller ‘Safe Haven’ with Josh Duhamel. The movie hits theaters on Feb. 8, 2013.

Duhamel shared an amusing photo on Twitter that he tagged, “Serious business?” Check it out below:
