While she might not use her medium as a soapbox the way Aaron Sorkin does, Diablo Cody certainly rivals Mr. Newsroom when it comes to writing dialogue and scenes that…

Take notes ‘Bad Teacher’. This is how it’s done.
If you aren’t hot on this choice, wait until you see he the female frontrunner is.
A girl named Diablo is finding religion.
‘Young Adult’ isn’t your normal Reitman film.
And THAT’S how you narrate a story.
Patton Oswalt has signed on to play Charlize Theron's chubby best friend in Young Adult. Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody, who last worked together on Juno, are teaming up again for the film about a woman who returns to her high school town to basically stalk her old boyfriend like she's Marky Mark. The guy's got a wife and kid now though, so he's not interested in Charlize. Not interested? His Mrs. must do crazy sh*t in the sack.
Josh Brolin decided he couldn't pretend Charlize isn't worth leaving his wife for and now Patrick Wilson is in talks for the role. Seems like a missed opportunity to put Wilson in a fat suit and cast him as the best friend and Oswalt as the ex-boyfriend. I'd love to watch Charlize beg Oswalt to have sex with her and he looks up at her with stern eyes and proclaims, "No, Ugly!" (/Film)
"No funny stuff, lady."
Josh Brolin is considering letting Charlize Theron ruin his life. I thought Jonah Hex already took care of that, but I guess not. Brolin is up for the role of Charlize's ex-boyfriend in Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's next collabo Young Adult. If he signs on, Brolin will play the former high school sweetheart to Theron's successful YA author, who she decides to stalk. I hate when statuesque model types try to break themselves off a piece o' this.
The movie is said to have a few humorous moments, but for the most part it will be "pretty serious and f*cked up." Just like that E.T. porno that's been making the rounds. No, I won't link you. Look it up, perv. (Showbiz 411)
Jason Reitman has signed on to direct Diablo Cody's latest screenplay, Young Adult. Reitman, who also directed Cody's teen-pregnancy film, Juno, will have Charlize Theron as a lead, playing an author who finds success writing under a pseudonym.
The film will be Reitman's first since directing the Oscar winning Up in the Air, and will be Cody's first since penning the box-office bomb, Jennifer's Body. If you combine those two titles, you have Up in Jennifer's Body, which I think sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than Young Adult, but that's just me. (Cinema Blend)
Mandate Pictures has optioned Diablo Cody's Young Adult which she describes as "pretty serious and f*cked up." I take that to mean that the characters won't refer to one another as home-skillet.The script is about a fiction writer who moves back to her hometown and begins to stalk her high school sweetheart, who is now married with a child. Here's Cody describing her motivation for the project:"You don’t get to see women be antiheroes that often, where it’s like somebody like Mickey Rourke, who gets a comeback in The Wrestler. It’s rarer that you’ll have a studio say, “Let’s have an actress come back and be ugly!”This is very true except for the Oscar contenders Monster, Frida, Boy's Don't Cry, Precious, Transamerica, and the, ummm, Kid's Choice Award-nominated Ugly Betty.On a side-note, why does Diablo Cody look like a completely different person everytime I see her? Is she a shape-shifter? I bet it's that she's a shape-shifter. (Vulture)
Most of the presentations at this year's Comic-Con were staged within the friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center, and all the parties were held at various hotels downtown. But Twentieth Century Fox picked San Diego's Manchester Grand Hyatt as the venue for an evening with JENNIFER'S BODY, which included a screening, Q&A with cast and crew, and afterparty at the hotel's Kin Lounge. Screen Junkies was lucky enough to get the invite for all of the above, and we have the scoop – including more foxy pics of Fox – after the jump…
JENNIFERS BODY SFW Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersOn Monday, we posted ShockTilYouDrop's Red Band trailer for Jennifer's Body, and today, the theatrical trailer was released online. This one's noticeably tamer and free of Diablo Cody's trademark "Diablogue" like the soon-to-be-meme, "Smells like Thai food in here. Were you guys f**king?" We're guessing if Fox had allowed a permutation of that line in thisSFW version, it would go something like, "Smells like Thai food in here.
