Charlize Theron will star in Young Adult from Juno collaborators Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman. Theron will play a ghost writer of young adult novels who seeks to claim her own identity. Several studios are interested in snagging the rights to the film.
While Reitman hit the jackpot with Up in the Air after Juno, Cody struck out with Jennifer's Body. This new effort will have big shoes to fill considering that Juno won Cody a Best Screenplay Oscar and raked in more than $225 million worldwide.
