'Labor Day' director has already adapted 'Men, Women and Children'

“Labor Day” director Jason Reitman is prepping his next possible project, an adaptation of sex drama “Men, Women and Children” with a possible cast of Rosemarie DeWitt, Jennifer Garner and Adam Sandler in talks to star.

Reps for Reitman said no deals have been made by the director for cast or financing. “Labor Day” screens Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival.

Reitman is developing “Men” through his Right of Way producing banner and has written an adaptation of the 2011 novel by Chad Kultgen, dealing with the sexual frustrations of junior high school students and their parents in the Internet age.  Kultgen’s novels include “The Average American Male” and “The Lie.” He also received story credit on “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.”

“Labor Day” received positive reviews when it screened Aug. 29 at the Telluride Film Festival. Story centers on a teenager (Gattlin Griffith) as he confronts the pangs of adolescence while struggling to care for his reclusive mother (Kate Winslet). Josh Brolin portrays an escaped killer who they take in.
