Charlize Theron: 'Young Adult' with Jason Reitman & Diablo Cody!

Charlize Theron is set play a ghostwriter of young adult novels in the upcoming drama, Young Adult.

Deadline reports the entire Juno team of director Jason Reitman, screenwriter Diablo Cody, and production companies Mandate Pictures and Mr. Mudd are teaming up again for this project.

Charlize‘s character “realizes she has no identity with her pseudonym and plots to reclaim her identity. Her campaign involves going back and rekindling a relationship with her high school boyfriend–who’s freshly married, is a new father, and wants no part of her… While she works on her plan, the ghostwriter reengages with high school acquaintances and their experiences in trying to carry out all those high school hopes and dreams that often get crushed by the realities of life.” Sounds interesting!!!

Young Adult starts production in New York on November 10.

    I don’t think Charlize can headline a movie on her own. She is good when working in an assemble when she doesn’t have to carry the film herself. Gorgeous gal, but she doesn’t have the IT to carry a film on her own without a bigger name costar.

    @bagabou i seriously have to disagree with you. you obviously haven’t seen monster. that film wasn’t the greatest film in the world but charlize carried it right to the closing scene. she commands your attention every time she comes on-screen, in any film.

    plus she can do comedy no problem. anyone seen arrested development? she’s a natural talent. can’t wait to see this film if she remains part of the cast.

    Sure she CAN “carry a film on her own”.

    thumbs up Charlize

  • plz


    Oh really? she carried out “Monster” on her own like no other actress, a small budget indie film who raised millions on her own, i haven’t seen any other actress of her generation doing the same resut with an ” indie” film they all have to do stupid action movies and get pushed by a big PR machines to be helped…
