It could be argued that Jason Reitman‘s last good film was 2011’s searing, hilarious black dramedy “Young Adult.” Penned by Diablo Cody (who he previously worked with on “Juno“) and starring Charlize Theron, the film earned the actress a Golden Globe for her work. Since then, the director’s efforts have missed the mark, with both “Labor Day” and “Men, Women & Children” failing to connect critically or commercially. But Reitman is reteaming with his “Young Adult” crew and hoping to make some magic again.
Deadline reports that the trio are working on a new film about motherhood. That’s about all the details there are at the moment, as there’s no word yet on the synopsis or plot specifics. But certainly having these talent together again is promising, so we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out.
Again, it’s all early stages so no word yet on when it will lens, but it should be noted both Theron and Cody are mothers, and it’s likely this is a compelling creative step to take. Check out this podcast talk with Diablo Cody about “Ricki And The Flash,” motherhood, and more. [Deadline]
