Jason Reitman Snatches "Juno" from Brad Silberling


Jason Reitman


Jason Reitman replaces Brad Silberling to direct "Juno."

Looks like the baton has slipped off Brad Silberling's hands completely to be handed over to Jason Reitman. Variety has reported that Silberling has backed away from Mandate Pictures' "Juno" and so prompted the company to assign Reitman as his replacement in the project for sure.

Silberling, known for his 2004 work in "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events", has been said to take his departure because of creative differences over casting which so far has not yet been settled despite the aim to start filming production on early fall. As for Reitman, the picture will be his next effort after star-studded comedic feature of "Thank You for Smoking" which previously saw its release in March.

Executive produced by Joe Drake also Nathan Kahane, "Juno" is based on Diablo Cody's scripts that takes a darkly humorous look at the difficult choices facing a pregnant teen and is scheduled to be released later in this year.
