The Young Adult reunion is official: Charlize Theron, Diablo Cody, and Jason Reitman are set to collaborate on Tully, an indie comedy exploring themes of motherhood, Bron Studios announced Friday.
Theron will play Marlo, a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny by her brother. Though initially reluctant to accept, she comes to form a unique bond with the young titular caregiver.
As initial reports indicated last month, Reitman will direct from Cody’s screenplay, marking their third such film together (following Young Adult and Juno). Reitman most recently helmed Men, Women and Children, and Cody penned Ricki and the Flash.
Theron can currently be seen in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, and her other upcoming projects include the spy thriller The Coldest City and the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious series.
Theron, Reitman, and Cody will produce Tully alongside Aaron L. Gilbert, Helen Estabrook, Mason Novick, A.J. Dix and Beth Kono. Production is scheduled to start this summer in Vancouver, Canada.
