Juno duo Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody are set to reunite for new drama Young Adult.

Three years after having all but launched Cody’s writing career – and giving Reitman’s profile a boost – with Juno, the pair are now looking to recruit Charlize Theron for the project.

Young Adult follows Theron’s disenchanted scribbler, a ghostwriter of young adult novels, who attempts to reconnect with a past high school love who has no interest in her.

According to The Playlist, the script is a dark, twisted fable, and appears to fold in themes of longing, deceit and the loss of identity.

So long as it doesn’t have Megan Fox eating people, we’re happy.

Excited to see this trio working together?
