Paramount Pictures has released the official one-pager for Jason Reitman‘s upcoming film Young Adult starring Charlize Theron, Patton Oswalt, and Patrick Wilson. I’ve heard good things coming out of the test screenings in Southern California, including praise for Theron, Oswalt and Diablo Cody‘s screenplay (which has been described as completely different than any of her past work). No release date has been announced, but I would assume that the film will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September, as that has been the debut venue for Retiman’s last couple films. The fact that Paramount had uploaded a one-pager also hints that they are probably planning to release the first image from the film soon. Hit the jump to find out more about the film.
