Transcript of Juno
Diablo Cody was first approached to write a screenplay by film producer Mason Novick. He persuaded her to adapt a previous book of hers for the screen, but suggested that she first write a screenwriting sample to show studios, then that sample eventually became Juno.
She also found inspiration in the story of a close friend who had become pregnant in high school and used some details and experiences from her friend's life in the film.
Juno's creation went on and after writing the screenplay for over seven weeks in the Starbucks section of a Target, it's development was pretty much finished.
Diablo Cody also admitted that she had a cynical, negative attitude when writing Juno. She said "I didn't ever think this film would be produced!" It nearly wasn't because of financial reasons.
It was eventually took on by Mr Mudd, and then joined the production company Mandate Pictures for the start of Juno to get underway.
Distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures and released on September 1, 2007.
It became a wide release film On December 25th.
Juno was very well received by it's target audience and everyone who viewed because of it's many awards and acolades. 'Paste Magazine' named it one of the 50 Best Movies of the Decade ranking it at number 15. In June 2010, 'Entertainment Weekly' named Juno one of the 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years.
