Ben Stiller and James Franco will team up for Noah Baumbach film
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Noah Baumbach will be re-teaming with Ben Stiller on his next film entitled WHILE WE’RE YOUNG which will also be starring James Franco. The story centers on a young couple in Brooklyn who draw the attention of a documentary filmmaker and his wife who learn to loosen up after meeting the free-spirited youth. The young couple will consist of Franco and possibly Greta Gerwig (GREENBERG) who has been offered the part and the older couple will consist of Stiller and potentially Cate Blanchett, who has also been offered the role. As soon as all the casting has been confirmed, shooting will likely begin early next year.
I know there are a lot of Noah Baumbach fans out there who think he does brilliant work, but it just doesn’t appeal to me. I find his stories to be slow moving and I have a really tough time connecting with his characters. WHILE WE’RE YOUNG does sound more intriguing so I’ll keep my fingers crossed and continue to try and “get it”.
