The most buzz-worthy horror film at the Toronto film festival (and in Hollywood as a whole) is 'Juno' scribe Diablo Cody's newest project, the teen horror comedy 'Jennifer's Body.' In spite of its meat-headed execs and testosterone-laden talent, Tinseltown has finally produced a project that has a wholly feminine bite. Here's a guide to the gals who will be delivering that pom-pom wielding gut punch.

Here's a guide to the gals who will be delivering that pom-pom wielding gut punch.

Who are they?
Director Karyn Kusama, writer Diablo Cody and star Megan Fox

How you may know them? New Yorker Karyn Kusama rose to fame in 2000 after directing her first feature, 'Girlfight', starring Michelle Rodriguez (an unknown at the time). Her sophomore effort, 'Aeon Flux' (2005) was met with less enthusiasm, but hopefully 'Jennifer' gets her back on track. Diablo Cody is the celebrity scribe behind the quick-talking 2007 hit 'Juno' and, more recently, Showtime's 'United States of Tara'. Megan Fox is... well, you know her. She is the lips and hips that propel the 'Transformers' franchise and the dreams of nubile male teens.

How did they find each other? Diablo Cody wrote the screenplay for 'Jennifer's Body' the same year she wrote 'Juno' (2006). The rights to the script were purchased in 2007, with Megan Fox set to star. In January 2008, it was announced that Kusama would be directing.

What's next for the trio? Diablo Cody is allegedly developing three new scripts, including 'Girly Style' and 'Breathers: A Zombie's Lament'. Meanwhile, Megan Fox will not be stopping to catch her breath. She is set to appear in a western horror opposite Josh Brolin ('Jonah Hex') , reportedly followed by a role as an angel in Mickey Rourke's next film, 'Passion Play'.

Trivia: Some of the movie's high school scenes were filmed in Vancouver, B.C., schools, such as Vancouver Technical Secondary School, Langley Secondary School and University Hill Secondary School.
