Paramount Pictures has come aboard to distribute and co-produce the Indian Paintbrush production “Labor Day,” directed by Jason Reitman.

Indian Paintbrush is co-financing the film, with the company’s Steven Rales and Mark Roybal exec producing. “Labor” will be the third consecutive Reitman pic to be distribbed by Par, following 2009’s “Up in the Air” and “Young Adult,” set to bow Dec. 16.
