Diablo Cody Sells Third Script

Mandate Picture have bought the rights to Diablo Cody’s new script Young Adults, to be produced by the same team behind Cody’s first film Juno. Juno was a huge success for all involved and even earned Cody an Oscar, but her second film Jennifer’s Body was a critical and commercial flop with good reason. My favourite of her work is the US TV series United States of Tara, currently starting its second series, which features Toni Collete as a wife and mother with multiple personality disorder.

With such a varied degree of quality to her work so far it remains to be seen whether Young Adult will be a modern classic or an almighty mess.
