Josh Brolin May Be Charlize Theron’s Old Flame for Reitman’s ‘Young Adult’

By  · Published on August 12th, 2010

As if news that Jason Reitman was re-teaming with Diablo Cody wasn’t good enough, and as if Charlize Theron joining as the star didn’t cap it off, recent word is that Josh Brolin might be following up his 19 films in 2010 by co-starring for Young Adult.

In the story that focuses on Charlize Theron’s divorcee author returning to her home town (what a classic trope) to reconnect with her now-married former love, Brolin may just be the married object of her affection.

As per Reitman’s contract with Hollywood, the film will be nominated for Best Picture. [Showbiz 411]
