It was reported last month that Charlize Theron was eyeing a potential reunion with the Young Adult team of Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody for another project. Although the prospect was incredibly exciting, nothing had yet been confirmed until today, and we have some new details about the upcoming comedy as Theron has officially signed on for the film.
Please cancel the rest of Monday because movie news will not get better than this. Young Adult was Jason Reitman’s last great film, and arguably his best film, period. Just as Young Adult’s Mavis returned home to reunite with her ex-boyfriend in an attempt to recreate her “best self,” so will Reitman reunite with Charlize Theron and screenwriter Diablo Cody in an attempt to recapture his best work.
Amazon Studios scored an early Christmas present with Friday’s renewal of controversial alt-history drama The Man in the High Castle, but that’s just the beginning. The streaming service has also picked up five new dramas, including Tig Notaro and Diablo Cody’s One Mississippi, while renewing Red Oaks and Hand of God.
