Stunning Charlize Theron has been rather quiet of late but this will step thrust her back in the spotlight in no time. Director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno) and screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno, The United States of Tara) are reuniting after much success together with 2007's Juno. Deadline.com reports that their new project Young Adult will star Oscar winner Theron, who will play a Ghost Writer of novels for young adults. Feeling a loss of self-identity, she decides to reunite with some of her High School friends and try to fulfill some of the dreams they had which never came true. The film will be a joint production between Mandate Pictures and John Malkovich's Mr. Mudd. Production tentatively is set to begin this November.

As an aside, Cody just welcomed a new baby boy into this world last week named Marcello Daniel Maurio and I did get to meet her at TIFF last fall when she was promoting Jennifer's Body.  I can confirm she's just delightful. I'm baffled how she divides her time between all these projects and balancing being a mother!
