Oscar-nominated Juno director Jason Reitman is turning the corporate satire Up In The Air into a movie.

He is attached to adapt the novel by Thumbsucker author Walter Kirn, but has yet to announce his third directing job after Thank You For Smoking and Juno.

Published in 2002, Up In The Air is a satire of corporate culture, centring on a management consultant who engages in career transition counseling, a euphemism for firing people.

The man’s ultimate goal is to accumulate 1 million frequent flier miles while trying to get a plum job at a mysterious management company called MythTech.

The Montecito Picture Co., the production company run by Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman, owns the rights to the book.
