Before we get to see Charlize Theron attempting to conquer the fairest of them all in Snow White and the Huntsman, she’s set to star in the Jason Reitman film Young Adult . Written by Diablo Cody, Young Adult will have Theron playing a young adult novel writer who returns to her hometown in the hopes of tracking down her ex-boyfriend.
The word “evil” might be a strong word to use to describe Theron’s character in Young Adult, however based on the trailer, added to the clip below (courtesy of Apple (opens in new tab)), which has her reconnecting with Patton Oswalt’s character in a bar, it might be fair to say that she’s a bit unpleasant to be around.
She seems thrilled to meet him again, doesn't she? Given how much we see of Oswalt in the trailer, it seems likely that the above conversation is just a prelude for some kind of friendship between the two of them as Theron’s character attempts to pursue her now-married ex-boyfriend.
Young Adult hits theaters on December 9th. More on the film can be found in our Blend Film Database.
