Charlize Theron, Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody first collaborated on 2011's comedy drama Young Adult and now the trio are reportedly reteaming for a new untitled project all about the trials and tribulations of motherhood. Theron will star while Reitman directs, working with a script from Oscar-winning screenwriter Cody.
Any details about the script for the new movie are currently under wraps, however, with this filmmaking team, it seems unlikely that it will be anything less than great, given their track record. The news that the band were getting back together, so to speak, was originally reported by Deadline, with Reitman seemingly confirming the rumour by posting the article on his personal Twitter account alongside a photograph of himself and Cody.
Young Adult saw Theron play an immature alcoholic ghost writer who returns to her Minnesota home town to restart her life, leading mostly to a series of embarrassments for all involved. Theron was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance, while Cody, who also produced, received a Writers Guild Award nod for her screenplay. While the film didn't quite make a killing at the box-office, earning $22 million (£15m) worldwide, compared to its $12m budget, it was definitely worth Paramount Pictures' time.
Reitman and Cody previously worked together (sans Theron) on 2007's Juno, with Cody winning an Academy Award for best original screenplay. Reitman was nominated for a best director Oscar for Juno, and produced 2009's Jennifer's Body, which was written by Cody.
Theron can currently be seen in dark fantasy The Huntsman: Winter's War opposite Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Chris Hemsworth. Reitman most recently directed four episodes of the TV series Casual while Cody is gearing up to begin writing the script for a live-action movie about Barbie, scheduled for release in 2017.
