It’s official: movie number five for Jason Reitman will be Labor Day, and it will be produced through Paramount Pictures. This romantic drama, which sounds like quite a departure, finds a single mother who takes in a mysterious drifter with a dangerous past. Things get heated, erupting in a passionate affair over the titular holiday. While this seems like the type of thing we’d love with Shelley Winters and Robert Mitchum from the pen of Tennessee Williams, instead this is from the book by Joyce Maynard, with Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin as the illicit couple. Eh, not a huge downgrade.
Production on the film starts next June for a summer shoot, making this Reitman’s fourth collaboration with Paramount â€” Juno emerged via Fox Searchlight. It’s definitely a stretch for Reitman, who didn’t know a single moment of sincerity he couldn’t spike with air quotes, but we’d love to see what sort of chemistry exists between Brolin and Winslet.
Reitman’s latest, Young Adult, hits December 9th. The word seems uncertain as to the film’s status as an Oscar player, but Reitman’s last two films, Juno and Up In The Air, were pretty big contenders with a certain subset of voters. Paramount locking in Labor Day suggests a certain amount of confidence in Young Adult. In other words, this is a pretty cushy arrangement. Hey Jason, if you’re reading, can we borrow some money?

Contagion, which also stars Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bryan Cranston, centers on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to deal with the outbreak.
The Warner Bros. release was produced by Soderbergh, Gregory Jacobs, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher from a screenplay by Scott Z. Burns.
Fishburne will also be on hand at the fest to serve as international jury prexy. The fest will also honor Fishburne, who has appeared in such productions as The Matrix trilogy, Mystic River, What’s Love Got To Do With It and the upcoming Man Of Steel, with a special achievement award.
