tully early buzz

Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman are something of an indie dream team. The duo’s first collaboration produced the sharply funny Juno, which became one of the most over-quoted films in the last decade, and helped catapult Cody and stars Ellen Page and Michael Cera to fame. While their second film together, the bleak and sardonic Young Adult, didn’t quite permeate pop culture like Juno, it established the duo’s easy, whip-smart rapport. Enter Tully, the third collaboration between Cody and Reitman starring Charlize Theron as a worn-out mother on the eve of giving birth to her third child. The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival to positive buzz, with many critics calling it the duo’s best collaboration yet.

Below, see some of the early buzz for Tully from the Sundance Film Festival.

Young Adult

Charlize Theron has had some pretty great roles in her time, but one of her best was in Jason Reitman‘s Young Adult. She was mesmerizing as as selfish and troubled writer Mavis Gary, with help from some sharp dialogue written by Diablo Cody. So it comes as fantastic news to hear the team’s thinking of getting back together again. Theron is reportedly eyeing a new project written by Cody, which Reitman will direct.  Read More »

Diablo Cody Quits Directing

With the indie sensation Juno, screenwriter Diablo Cody was quickly thrust into the spotlight as a success story of a stripper becoming a Hollywood scribe, making her one of the better known writers of movies in the industry. However, she’s yet to really match the success of her first big screen writing endeavor.

Cody attempted to broaden her horizons a bit by getting behind the camera for the first time with the 2013 movie Paradise, starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer, but the movie was skewered by critics after getting a DirectTV release. And it seems Cody doesn’t have much faith in her directing skills either as she recently said that she likely won’t ever direct another movie. Read More »
