Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin are set to star in Jason Reitman's Labor Day, an adaptation of the Joyce Maynard novel. Reitman penned the script about "a single mother (Winslet) of a young son who takes in a stranger with a dangerous past (Brolin). She falls in love with him over the course of Labor Day Weekend."
Winslet recently finished Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and Roman Polanski's Carnage, the adaptation of the hit play God of Carnage, and just finished filming HBO's Mildred Pierce. Brolin is currently filming Men In Black III. Labor Day is currently looking for a distributor and is being produced by Indian Paintbrush and Reitman's Right Of Way.
I have been a fan of Winslet since Heavenly Creatures and really liked Brolin's performance in No Country for Old Men. Reitman did great with Juno and Up in the Air. What are your thoughts on this casting news?
