Reitman Up In The Air

Director Jason Reitman's next film has been revealed by LatinoReview to be an adaptation of the book UP IN THE AIR by Walter Kirn. Here's the lowdown:

Ryan Bingham’s job as a Career Transition Counselor – he fires people – has kept him airborne for years. Although he despises his line of work, he has come to love the culture of what he calls, “Airworld,” finding contentment within pressurized cabins and anonymous hotel rooms. With a letter of resignation sitting on his boss’s desk, and the hope of a job with a mysterious consulting firm, Ryan Bingham is agonizingly close to his ultimate goal, his Holy Grail: one million frequent flier miles. Kirn takes on the corporate world's weirdly mystical and paranoid side, its rhetoric of personal empowerment and its messianic devotion to gurus.

After the bad-assery of THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and the major success of JUNO, industry analysts have confirmed Reitman could pitch a movie where he clubs baby raccoons for two hours, and still get a budget in excess of $100 million. When reached for a comment, prominent fashion designer Mugatu said "Jason Reitman. So hot right now."
Extra Tidbit: Reitman, that talented bastard also directed one of the best episodes of The Office - "Local Ad".

Reitman came out of nowhere! Loved Thank You For Smoking, not so hot for Juno, but good job Reitman, really made a name for himself, tough to pull off. I have respect for the man.

Ghostbusters 3

Us fans will just keep hounding him for Ghostbusters 3, even though he has no interest in taking up his Father's franchise (he likes smaller projects). Fair enough, but we'll all act like annoying pests until Sony greenlights it with someone else. Sorry, Jason. Busting makes us feel good!
