Jason Reitman to Direct Young Adult, Starring Charlize Theron 2010-08-03 07:30:00

Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody to Reunite, Now With Charlize

When director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody joined forces for Juno, it was a match made in Hollywood (and Oscar-winning) heaven. Now we'll find out if lightning can strike twice, as Reitman and Cody are putting their heads together once again for Young Adult, with Charlize Theron in talks to star in the film. Theron would play a novelist for young adults who returns to her hometown to try to reconnect with an ex-boyfriend from her past. It's being labeled as a dark comedy, but let's hope it's not Jennifer's Body dark. This is quite the triumvirate of heavy-hitters, so let's just say they've set the bar pretty high for themselves.
