After working together on the breakout hit Juno, screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman have reunited for Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, and Patton Oswalt. The film, which tells the story of a teen fiction writer (Theron) who returns to her small hometown to rekindle a romance with her high school sweetheart (Wilson), will hit theaters this holiday season, and we’ve got a look at the first trailer.
It looks like Cody’s ultra-hip dialogue is nowhere to be found here, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There should be plenty of dark humor and uncomfortable moments in this film, and with Reitman’s track record, he should knock this one out of the park. Young Adult opens in limited release on December 9, 2011.
