Jason Reitman is currently showing his latest film, Labor Day, in film festivals right now. But that’s not stopping him from getting his next project together, as it has been revealed that Reitman will be writing and directing an adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s novel Men, Women and Children.
Deadline reports the news, stating that not only is this going to be his next directorial effort, but that Reitman has already lined up Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jennifer Garner to potentially star in the film. There are also rumors that Cameron Diaz will be possibly signing on for a part. Production on the film could start as early as November. Indian Paintbrush will be financing the film.
While I haven’t seen Labor Day yet, Reitman has proved that he is at his best when he is adapting from novels. Both Up in the Air and Thank You For Smoking are, in my opinion, his best films thus far, and hopefully Labor Day and Men, Women and Children will be joining that selection.
Labor Day is set to be released in theaters, in limited release, on Christmas Day, with a wide release set for January 31, 2014.
