Any film project that involves three levels of talent -- Diablo Cody, Jason Reitman and Charlize Theron -- one has to take notice. But, to see how in the know you are, guess who wrote the script, who might direct, and finally the star. Don't know? Do you even watch movies?
Charlize Theron in Talks for Young Adult
Mandate is in talks with Jason Reitman to direct and Charlize Theron to star in Young Adult, based on a script by Diablo Cody. The dark comedy follows a thirtysomething, divorced, young-adult fiction writer (Theron) in Minneapolis who returns to her hometown to chase the ex-boyfriend, who's now married with a kid, that got away.
Though Mandate's first picks are still limited to talks, the studio has plenty of time to fill the roster, as production on Young Adult is not set to begin until mid-October.
