‘Juno’ team reunites on ‘Young Adult’

Mandate options rights to Diablo Cody script

The team behind “Juno” is plotting a reunion with the comedy “Young Adult.”

Mandate Pictures has optioned rights to the Diablo Cody screenplay, which will be produced by Cody, Mason Novick and Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith of John Malkovich’s Mr. Mudd shingle.

Mandate president Nathan Kahane and Malkovich are exec producing.

Mary Lee will oversee for Mandate, which is fast-tracking the project. There is no director attached.

“We are so excited to be entrusted with another Diablo Cody original,” Kahane said. “Working with producers like the Mudds and Mason makes our job very easy.”

“Young Adult,” whose plot details are being kept under wraps, marks the second collaboration for Mandate, Mr. Mudd, Novick and Cody, following “Juno.”

Cody is repped by the Gersh Agency.
