Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult” gets awards-friendly December date


By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re picking up a few more details on “Young Adult,” which reunites “Juno” director Jason Reitman with screenwriter Diablo Cody, and stars Charlize Theron and comedian Patton Oswalt.

The story follows a young adult author (Theron) who returns to small-town Minnesota in the hopes of reclaiming her happy youth — and her now-married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). But things don’t go as planned, and she instead forms an unusual bond with another former classmate (Oswalt).

Reitman’s film will be launched by Paramount in a limited run on Dec. 9, with an eye toward an awards-season run. That will be followed by a nationwide release on Dec. 16, THR reports.

“Young Adult,” which also stars Elizabeth Reaser and Reitman alum J.K. Simmons, has Academy Award buzz written all over it. Reitman has already received four Academy Award nominations in his six years as a feature filmmaker, two of which are for Best Director.

Screenwriter Diablo Cody also achieved critical acclaim worldwide for 2007‘s “Juno,” winning the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. She is currently re-writing the script for Fede Alvarez’s remake of Sam Raimi’s “The Evil Dead.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if Patton Oswalt turns a few heads with a somewhat serious, dramatic performance – people love to see comedians embrace their inner-theater kid: Adam Sandler in “Punch Drunk Love,” Jack Black in “Margot at the Wedding,” Jim Carrey in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” — you get the picture.
