Cameron Diaz is reportedly circling a role as well in director Jason Reitman’s adaptation of Chad Kultgen’s third novel, dealing with the sexual frustrations of junior high school students and their parents in the Internet age.
Reitman, whose hostage drama Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin will hit Toronto soon has already lined up Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt to lead the upcoming sex drama Men, Women and Children from a script he’s already adapted with Chloe scribe Erin Cressida Wilson.
If everything goes according to plan, the film will mark reunion between Garner and his Juno director Reitman. Besides, it would also reunite Oscar-nominated filmmaker with his Labor Day financiers Indian Paintbrush.
Men, Women and Children is looking to start production in November.
The book is officially described as follows:
Chad Kultgen, cult hero and author of the buzz-generating illicit classics The Average American Male and The Lie, cuts to the quick of the American psyche like no other author writing today. In Men, Women & Children he explores the sexual pressures at work on a handful of troubled, conflicted junior-high students and their equally dysfunctional parents. From porn-surfing fathers to World of Warcraft-obsessed sons, from competitive cheerleaders to their dissatisfied, misguided mothers, Kultgen clicks open the emotionally treacherous culture in which we live—in his most ambitious and surprising book yet.
Reitman’s Labor Day, which received mostly positive reviews when it screened in Telluride, opens in limited release on Christmas Day.
