THR has revealed the first teaser poster for Paramount Pictures' Young Adult, the second collaboration between screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman. Their previous movie, 2007's Juno, won Cody an Oscar and Reitman his first Academy Award nomination.
Young Adult stars Charlize Theron as an alcoholic, teen fiction writer who returns to her hometown in Minnesota to rekindle a romance with an old boyfriend (Patrick Wilson), who is now happily married. There, she runs into another former high school classmate (Patton Oswalt), who also has had a tough time letting go of the past. A photo of Theron in character was released by the studio a few weeks ago.
Opening December 16, Paramount is likely hoping that Young Adult captures the Academy's attention the way Juno did, perhaps awarding Theron with a nomination for what looks like the kind of image-shattering turn that won the actress her Oscar for 2003's Monster (only, Young Adult is probably funnier). Expect a trailer to arrive soon. Posted 09.06.11 by Ryan
