New project reunites Bateman and Reitman

U.S. actor Jason Bateman is reuniting with his Juno director, Jason Reitman, for the big-screen adaptation of Walter Kirn's novel Up in the Air.

Variety.com reported George Clooney will co-star in the movie as a corporate down-sizer obsessed with accumulating frequent flier miles at the expense of living his life. Bateman is to play his boss.

Bateman was recently seen in Hancock and will soon appear in the ensemble drama State of Play.
