It’s been a long time since we heard about this movie. Indeed the last time news emerged it didn’t have a name, but it was revealed that it would reunite Ben Stiller and Greenberg writer/director Noah Baumbach. At the time James Franco was also involved, and offers had been made to Greta Gerwig and Cate Blachett.
Fast forward a couple of years and Stiller is still attached but the other actors have gone. Instead TheWrap reports that Amanda Seyfried is in talks to join the film, with Adam Driver and Naomi Watts taking the other main roles. Oh, and it’s got a name, While We’re Young.
The film is about about a free-spirited Brooklynite twenty-something couple (Seyfried and Driver) who inspires an uptight documentarian (Stiller) and his wife (Watts) to loosen up – with comedic consequences. There’s no news on exactly when it might shoot.
