With his latest, Labor Day, set to hit theaters on December 25, director Jason Reitman is planning to make his next project an adaptation of Chad Kultgen's novel Men, Women & Children. Deadline reports that Rosemarie DeWitt, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner and Adam Sandler are all being eyed for roles.
The book, published in 2011, 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.
Indian Paintbrush is set to produce with production targeted for this November.
