Information on Academy Award-nominated writer-director Jason Reitman's (Up in the Air, Juno, Thank You For Smoking*) follow-up directorial effort has been sparse over the last year, but Deadline has the latest and it's almost a go: Reitman is set to direct Young Adult, an original script from Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (The United States of Tara, Jennifer's Body, Juno) with Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron (Monster) to star in the comedy-drama.

Young Adult centers on a ghost writer (Theron) who writes young adult novels. Suffering an early mid-life (identity) crisis, she decides to look up and rekindle a relationship with her high-school boyfriend (who's married and has zero interest in revisiting the past), and reconnect with old high-school friends and acquaintances.
