Paramount said today that it will bow Jason Reitman’s Young Adult in limited release on Dec. 9, 2011 and take it wide on Dec. 16. The pic, which reunites the Juno team of Reitman and scribe Diablo Cody, stars Charlize Theron as a ghostwriter of young-adult novels who dips into some adolescent behavior in an effort to reclaim her identity. Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt and Elizabeth Reaser also star. Paramount acquired worldwide rights from Mandate in October.
