In a story from the Risky Business Blog, Diablo Cody has set up a new screenplay, Young Adult, with Mandate Pictures.

John Malkovich is going to serve as one of the executive producers. Mandate presently has this project on the fast track as it looks for a director.

Young Adult focuses on a thirty-something, divorced, young-adult fiction writer in Minneapolis. She returns home to go after an ex-boyfriend. He's now married with a child.

Cody is presently working on a Taming of the Shrew redo for Paramount among other projects.
