Jason Reitman-Diablo Cody comedy goes to Paramount


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Their first collaboration put them both on the Hollywood map, furthered the skyrocketing careers of Ellen Page and Michael Cera, helped open doors that led to “Up In the Air” (and, sadly, “Jenifer’s Body”), and carried one of them to the podium on Oscar night.

Now Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, the pair who brought us “Juno,” will deliver a new, dark comedy titled “Young Adult,” which Paramount Pictures will distribute, according to a release.

Cody will write and Reitman will direct the story of a divorced writer who returns to her Minnesota hometown and reconnects with an old flame, who’s now married with a baby. Charlize Theron and Patrick Wilson are on board as the leads. Elizabeth Reaser and Patton Oswalt will co-star. The picture begins filming in New York shortly.

Given that Cody is an Oscar-winning writer who spent chunks of time in Minnesota, one wonders how much of “Young Adult” is biographical. We’ll find out when the picture is released. IMDb has it down for a 2013 date, but that can’t be right. Expect to see “Young Adult” in theaters sometime late next year.
