Cate Blanchett to join Ben Stiller and James Franco in While We're Young
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Noah Baumbach’s films definitely aren’t for everyone as he’s managed to tap into subtle human emotions that might be a little too subtle for most audiences. However, he has the attention and support of Hollywood and while it used to be hard for him to get films off the ground, he doesn’t seem to have any trouble nowadays. Cate Blanchett and Greta Gerwig were up for parts in his new film WHILE WE’RE YOUNG, but now it looks like only Blanchett will have the honor as she has officially signed on. I can’t say I’m disappointed because I don’t really see Gerwig playing well off James Franco.
Starring alongside Blanchett will be Ben Stiller and James Franco in the film about a free-spirited couple (Franco and an actress TBD) that inspire an uptight couple (Stiller and Blanchett) to loosen up, leading to comedic situations. No financing or start dates are in place, but with this cast, it shouldn’t take long.
