Currently enjoying the widest distribution one of his films has ever seen, Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is streaming on Netflix. The director is now set to reteam with the company for his next feature, and the cast has been confirmed for the project which begins shooting this spring.
Adam Driver, who reteams with the director after While We’re Young and has a brief appearance alongside Ben Stiller in his latest film, will lead the new drama, which also stars Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, Merritt Wever, and Azhy Robertson. Additional details are scarce as the only plot synopsis we have thus far is below, from a location scouting notice that cropped up over a month ago in New York City:
The story follows an unfolding divorce that spans from New York City to Los Angeles.
Filming begins in March. As we await more details, check out Baumbach discuss his most recent film at New York Film Festival, including a quote that will make you surprised he’s reteaming with Netflix again. We’ve also included our discussion of his latest feature. [The Tracking Board/Variety]
