The Hollywood Reporter learns that helmer Jason Reitman has a list of actors he wants to work with in his next movie. Reitman, whose directing credits include "Thank You for Smoking" and "Up in the Air", is reportedly eyeing Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt for "Men, Women and Children".
Deadline adds that in addition to the three aforementioned names, Cameron Diaz might be in line for a role in the adaptation of the Chad Kultgen novel. Reitman is said to have worked on the screenplay with "Chloe" scribe Erin Cressida Wilson. The plan is to kick off the production in November.
The book, published in June 2011, tells a story of a family with junior high school students and deals with the navigation of sexual awakenings in a digital age where the Internet has made pornography, blogs and social networking just a few clicks away. Reitman is additionally reported serving as a producer too under his Right of Way Films banner.
If all said actors are confirmed to be included in the cast ensemble, the project stages reunion between Garner and his "Juno" director Reitman. For the rest of the actors, it will be their first time working with the Oscar-nominated filmmaker, who will premiere "Labor Day" at the Toronto Film Festival.
