Washington - When Diablo Cody set out to write her first screenplay more than a decade ago, she said her inspiration came from one question: "What's a story that's never been told?"
With that, the 2007 Oscar-winning film Juno was born - a coming-of-age comedy chronicling the ups and downs in the life of a 16-year-old girl who gets pregnant unexpectedly and decides to give her baby up for adoption.
But as US states nationwide are passing or working to pass highly restrictive abortion bills, Cody appears to be rethinking the movie that launched her career.
"I don't even know if I would have written a movie like Juno if I had known that the world was going to spiral into this hellish alternate reality that we now seem to be stuck in," the 40-year-old said in an interview on the Keep It podcast.
"The Georgia thing is horrifying," Cody said on the podcast. "It's honestly something I've been kind of thinking about continuously in an endless dark feedback loop. It sucks so.. bad."
