Fans of Young Adult rejoice; the trio is getting back together. It was recently announced that Diablo Cody will team up with director Jason Reitman for Tully, a film starring Charlize Theron.
The script, penned by Cody, follows a mother of three (Theron), who hires a quirky night nanny. The two eventually form a unique bond.
All three have been busy since they worked together in 2011 on Young Adult, a film about an alcoholic writer of young-adult books who returns to her small hometown in Minnesota to wreak havoc. Announcements are frequently made that Cody is attached to a variety of interesting projects, including a Barbie movie and a Sweet Valley High flick. Theron had a big year in 2015 with Mad Max and is currently starring in The Huntsman. Reitman has been shooting episodes for Casual, a Hulu television show.
Reitman and Cody first worked together on the Oscar-winning Juno, and since then have also teamed up for Jennifer's Body, with Cody penning the script and Reitman producing.
No word yet on when Tully begins shooting.
