Lovers of Hello Kitty, Jason Reitman, Diablo Cody and Charlize Theron rejoice! The first poster and image from Reitman’s forthcoming film Young Adult has hit the Interweb waves from Paramount.
The poster and image are profoundly hip and kitsch and stuff. Unfortunately, this will still be written by Diablo Cody. As such, expect some painfully self-conscious dialogue and an unwavering belief that a 33-year-old ex-stripper has a secret window into the mind of today’s youth.
Synopsis: Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.
Young Adult reunites Jason Reitman, Academy Award© nominated director of “Juno,” and Academy Award© winning screenwriter, Diablo Cody.
