Charlize Theron in Young Adult

Late last year, it was announced that filmmaker Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air) would be directing another Diablo Cody script called Young Adult, which was put into production and shot by the end of the year. We finally have an official first look photo, thanks to SlashFilm, and if you like Charlize Theron, you better take a look. Theron stars as a successful young adult novel writer who returns to her home in small-town Minnesota, looking to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend, now married with kids. The cast also includes Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt and Collette Wolfe, but they're not pictured.

Charlize Theron in Jason Reitman's Young Adult

Academy Award winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of YA teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms a bond with a former classmate (Oswalt) who hasn't quite gotten over high school, either. Written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody, directed by Oscar nominee Jason Reitman. This looks weird but great, can't wait to see a trailer. Paramount is bringing Young Adult to theaters December 9th limited, wide on the 16th, later this winter. Curious?

    I don't like Diablo Cody's work-- or her, for that matter-- but this does sound pretty good. I hope she changes my mind with this one.
  • Very curious.

    Diablo Cody is definitely overrated, but I'm interested in seeing Patton Oswalt as someone who hasn't gotten over high school. That should be worth seeing.

    I like Jason Reitman movies but not really Diablo Cody...    (love Thank you for smoking, and Up in the Air)
