Long-gesting dramatic comedy begins casting… again.
Naomi Watts has reportedly entered into talks to star opposite Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s ‘While We’re Young.’
Featuring a script by Baumbach, the dramatic comedy revolves around an uptight documentary filmmaker (Stiller) and his wife (Watts) who find their lives loosened up a bit after befriending a free-spirited Brooklynite twenty-something couple.
THR hears that Adam Driver (‘Girls’) is in talks to play one half of the younger couple, with ‘Les Misérables’ star Amanda Seyfried rumoured to be in the mix to play the Driver’s partner.
Baumbach has been developing the film for a number of years now, with Gerta Gerwig, James Franco and Jesse Eisenberg having all been involved in previous incarnations.
