Reitman pens 'Up in the Air'


Jason Reitman is adapting the novel "Up in the Air," a satire of corporate culture by "Thumbsucker" author Walter Kirn. Montecito, run by Reitman's father Ivan Reitman, owns the rights to the book.

Reitman's camp said he is only writing the screenplay at this point and might not direct the project, which is not set up at a studio.

WMA-repped Reitman has yet to choose his next directorial effort, though he and his Hard C partner Dan Dubiecki are in production on "Jennifer's Body." (partialdiff)
