A week ago we reported on the big screen reunion of Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman for a new film called Young Adult. Charlize Theron will star in the feature that has a Never Been Kissed type of vibe that centers on a woman going back to high school and reclaiming her lost love. The latest development surrounding the film has Josh Brolin as a possible candidate to play the object of her affection…
Young Adult centers on a ghostwriter of young adult novels who plots to reclaim her identity. Her campaign involves going back and rekindling a relationship with her high school boyfriend — who’s freshly married, is a new father, and wants no part of her. While she works on her plan, the ghostwriter reengages with high school acquaintances and their experiences in trying to fulfill all those high school hopes and dreams that often get crushed by the realities of life.
In other words, she’s mildly insane and has some stalker tendencies but what guy out there wouldn’t want to be stalked by Charlize Theron? According to Showbiz 411, Brolin may sign on to play her male counterpart. This would be a welcome stretch for the actor because he doesn’t really get to show his great comedic timing in a lot of his films. And have you seen the guy in interviews? He’s hilarious!
Do you think Brolin and Theron would make a good pair?
