After Greenberg and Frances Ha (the latter of which we praised at TIFF and will debut next year), it’s been revealed that director Noah Baumbach is already in production on his next film. Word crept up last week when Bwog (via The Playlist) got a tip that the director was on the Barnard College campus, located around Columbia University in New York City’s Upper West Side. Reteaming with his Frances Ha cinematographer Sam Levy, not much else was known other than the story is reportedly “female-driven,” but today confirmation has come in.
Production Weekly has reported that it’s indeed a new Baumbach film and it’s simply being referred to as the Untitled Public School Project for now. While the brief story detail could indicate the return of Greta Gerwig (who is reportedly dating Baumbach and starred in his last two films), there has been no confirmation of any casting yet. As we await further details, below one can check out a photo Instragram user dimachaar snapped of the production underway.
