Juno director Jason Reitman’s latest movie, Labor Day, is scheduled for release in January 2014, but he’s already thinking ahead to his next one.
It will be based on Chad Kultgen’s novel Men, Women, & Children, about the impact of internet obsession on several different families. Deadline reports that Cameron Diaz, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, and Rosemarie DeWitt are rumored to be possibilities for the film.
Production for the project may begin in November of this year.
In Labor Day, Kate Winslet’s character offers help to a wounded man whom she later learns is an escaped convict, played by Josh Brolin.
It made its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last month and is now screening at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), according to the Huffington Post.
Not only is Labor Day screening there, but Reitman will also be holding a live reading of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights at TIFF on September 6th.
TheStar.com reports that Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are Reitman’s latest cast choices to read the script from the 1997 film, in front of a live audience at Ryerson Theatre.
A few other Canadian and U.S. actors will be participating as well, including comedian Dane Cook.
