Jonah Hex star Josh Brolin is reportedly circling the new Jason Reitman film Young Adult, according to Showbiz 411.

We reported just last week that Reitman was on board to direct with Charlize Theron locked in as the female lead. The film would center on Theron's character, a recently-divorced writer who returns to her Midwest roots to reconnect with an ex-lover, who is now married with children. Brolin would play the ex-lover if he in fact is signed onto the film.

Reitman will direct from a script by his Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody with John Malkovich executive producing the film as well, according to our report from last week.

No production schedule was given for the film, but we'll be sure to keep you posted with any further developments on Young Adult as soon as we have more information.
