Diablo Cody-Jason Reitman ‘Young Adult’ comedy nabs Wilson, Oswalt
HollywoodNews.com: Patrick Wilson and comedian Patton Oswalt have been added to the cast of “Young Adult,” the new Jason Reitman black comedy.
“Adult” reteams Reitman with his “Juno” Oscar-winning scribe Diablo Cody. The film goes before the cameras in Minnesota and New York next month. Mandate is financing the project.
The Hollywood Reporter describes the plot for “Adult” as follows:
“Adult” follows a thirtysomething, divorced, young-adult fiction writer (Theron) in Minneapolis who returns to her hometown in Minnesota to chase an ex-boyfriend — who’s now married with a just-born baby — that got away.
Wilson will play Theron’s ex-boyfriend, while Oswalt plays a handicapped cynic who once had eyes for her character in high school. Oswalt’s character winds up assisting Theron in her homecoming journey.
Oswalt stars in Cody’s Showtime series “United States of Tara” and regularly performs stand-up comedy at the Largo Cabaret in Los Angeles. He charmed mass audiences as the voice of the lead rat in the Disney-Pixar animated film “Ratatouille.”
Wilson can be seen next in James Wan’s horror movie “Insidious” and the Rachel McAdams -Harrison Ford romantic comedy “Morning Glory.”
