Ellen Page reprises Juno in all-female live-read by Jason Reitman benefiting Planned Parenthood

While »Juno« is approaching its 10th anniversary, director Jason Reitman is re-staging his 2007 independent film as a one-night-only live-read to raise money and awareness for the women's health organization Planned Parenthood next month. Ellen Page will be reprising her role as the quirky pregnant teen and Jennifer Garner will be back as the hopeful, adoptive mother. The male parts originally played by Michael Cera, Jason Bateman and J.K. Simmons will be filled by actresses as well.

It is going to be the third event of this kind with an entirely female cast following the readings of "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Stand by Me", which already had Page taking on Chris in March 2016. "Considering how much this (last US presidential) election has done against women and what Planned Parenthood has done for women I thought it would be cool to hear this script with an all-female voice," Reitman said.

Jason Reitman and Mr Mudd Present A Juno Live Read

In fact, it was the 2016 election that inspired him to bring his live script-reading back to life after putting it aside after five seasons in April last year. This will be the first show of many in a new Resistance-inspired lineup, touching on topics such as immigration and the fake news epidemic. "Like many other people, I felt like I wanted to do something. I wanted to find a way to contribute to the causes that have never felt more important," he told Entertainment Weekly. "It occurred to me that I have this show that could be used as a tool to not only raise money for causes that need the help, but could serve as an opportunity for a group like Planned Parenthood to connect with an audience who can be presented with new ideas, or even an action item." At the same time he believes the live-read will resolve one point of debate about Juno, which was embraced by some anti-abortion advocates because the main character chooses to give birth rather than terminate the pregnancy. "If there was any confusion about whether Juno was pro-choice or pro-life, this should settle that. Juno had a choice, and that was the most important part."

The event will take place at the Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles on April 8 at 7:30 PM, and tickets can be found here. The organizers will also be selling original artwork from the opening titles and other signed memorabilia, with all the money going to Planned Parenthood. Screenwriter Diablo Cody is scheduled to be in attendance at the reading, but won't play a part in it.
