Paramount Pictures announced today that principal photography has commenced on Men, Women & Children, from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Jason Reitman (upcoming Labor Day, Young Adult, Up in the Air). The film stars Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, Adam Sandler and Emma Thompson. The film is shooting in and around Austin, Texas.

Men, Women & Children is based on Chad Kultgen's novel of the same name with Reitman directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Chloe). He is producing the feature with his partner Helen Estabrook through their Right of Way Films banner. Michael Beugg (Up in the Air, Little Miss Sunshine) and Mason Novick (Bad Words, Juno) will serve as executive producers.

The young ensemble cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Crocicchia, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, Katherine Hughes, Elena Kampouris and Travis Tope.

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose - some tragic, some hopeful - as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Narrated by Emma Thompson, the film's ensemble cast features Sandler and DeWitt as Don and Rachel Truby, and Tope as their son Chris. Garner stars as Patricia Beltmeyer with Dever as her daughter Brandy. Greer is Joan Clint and Crocicchia is daughter Hannah. Norris plays Kent Mooney with Elgort playing his son Tim. Hughes and Kampouris play cheerleaders Brooke Benton and Allison Doss, respectively, and Chalamet is football player Danny Vance.

Rounding out the cast are David Denman, Jason Douglas, Dennis Haysbert, Shane Lynch, Will Peltz and J.K. Simmons.
