Young Adult Fiction

A while back there was news that Diablo Cody was writing a Sweet Valley High movie set in the 1980s. It feels like an age (literally) since we heard anything about that project, and even back in 2009 I said the prospect was "immediately questionable", so it's probably safe to assume it has been put on the backburner.

If that movie never pans out then at least we'll always have this glorious teaser poster for Young Adult the latest collaboration between Juno director and writer pair Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody. The poster takes on the aesthetic of one of those young adult fiction books that everyone read at one point or another, with obvious links to hardcover copies of Sweet Valley High and The Babysitter's Club. The film even stars Charlize Theron who has a kinda Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield look about her, don't you think?
