Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #159. Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

Men, Women & Children

Director: Jason Reitman
Writer(s): Jason Reitman, Erin Cressida Wilson
Producers: Right of Way Films’ Helen Estabrook & Reitman
U.S. Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Cast: Adam Sandler, Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons, Ansel Elgort, and Emma Thompson narrates.

His peachy Labor Day — a human drama about becoming a surrogate, wants and needs  fulfilled become late 2013’s/early 2014’s punching bag for critics, but if you spread out his filmography there are glimpses of sharply written dialogue, and complex characters with his book to film adaptations. Men, Women & Children could definitely offer a spot on, soapy bunch of characters and an Adam Sandler closer to a Punch-Drunk Love type role will certainly draw plenty of onlookers.

Gist: Based on the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen, the film “follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives.

Release Date: No end of year date has been set – but we can expect the comedy to roll out post fall fest season which means it’ll either go to Telluride or TIFF and perhaps not both.
