In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Charlize Theron and Jason Reitman are presently in talks for Young Adult, based on a script by Diablo Cody for Mandate Pictures.

Mandate bought the script in March.

The story follows a divorced writer (Charlize Theron) from the Midwest who returns to her hometown to reconnect with an old flame, who's now married with a family.

John Malkovich is executive producing this project which will reunite Reitman with much of the team behind his breakout hit, Juno.
