Juno director Jason Reitman may have an Oscar nomination under his belt, but establishment success hasn’t spoiled his taste for subversive fun.

Reitman recently spoke with MTV Movies about his next writing project, as well as giving some hints about the Diablo Cody-scripted Jennifer’s Body, which he’s producing. Asked about what he’s writing, Reitman did the screenwriter shuffle, admitting only the following:

Yeah, I’m writing something. I’m going to direct it at the end of the year. And no, I haven’t told anyone what it is yet….It’s a comedy and a drama [book adaptation]. Think ‘Thank You for Smoking,’ but instead of political, it’s corporate.

(And yes, Reitman says, “Of course, there will always be room for J.K. Simmons.”)

Moving on to Jennifer’s Body, Reitman told MTV that the production begins shooting in three weeks — and when asked to describe the “scene he can’t wait to see on the big screen,” he locked up the top box office spot for the film’s opening weekend:

Well, we’ve got Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried getting into a fight in their underwear. That’ll be fun.
