Jason Reitman is bringing his latest film "Labor Day," starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, to Toronto, but he's also reportedly lining up his next project. The director is circling an adaptation of Chad Kultgen's novel "Men, Women and Children," with Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt in talks for lead roles.

Per Deadline, Cameron Diaz may also get on board the production, which is looking toward a November production start.

The book centers on a family with middle school students, and deals with "the navigation of sexual awakenings in a digital age where the Internet has made pornography, blogs and social networking just a few clicks away."

Reitman is also conducting one of his live readings at TIFF of Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights."

TOH! loved "Labor Day" out of Telluride. Our review is here.
