Paramount Pictures acquired world rights to Mandate Pictures' Young Adult, the pic that reteams Juno scribe Diablo Cody and director Jason Reitman. Deadline broke the story about the film and that they had landed Charlize Theron to play the lead role, a ghostwriter of young adult novels who dips into some adolescent behavior. She becomes determined to win back her high school boyfriend, who's freshly married and a new father, and who wants no part of her. Patrick Wilson and Patton Oswalt have also joined the cast, per the studio's announcement. The movie begins production in New York this month.
