Young Adult bringing Juno crew back together

Diablo Cody and the producers behind the hit Juno are reuniting behind another interesting project.

According to Variety, Cody’s screenplay Young Adult has been picked up by Mandate pictures and they’ve decided that there is no reason to break up a winning team. The film will be produced by Cody and Mason Novick, as well as Russell Smith and Lianne Halfon, co-founders with John Malkovich of the Mr. Mudd production company.

While Variety says that details are of the story are still under wraps, Cody herself, in conversation with New York Magazine’s Vulture says, “I’m working on a movie about a woman who’s stalking her high-school sweetheart. It has elements of humor, but it’s pretty serious and fucked up.” Reuters goes further, stating, “The storyline involves a thirtysomething, divorced, young-adult fiction writer in Minneapolis who returns to her hometown to chase the ex-boyfriend that got away — and who’s now married with a kid.”

This will be the second collaboration between Cody, Mr. Mudd and Mandate pictures. Cody currently works on the brilliant television series The United States of Tara, the second season of which started this past Monday.
