Greta Gerwig has landed the lead role opposite Ben Stiller in Greenberg, the latest Noah Baumbach relationship dramedy which he is writing and directing.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Baumbach is best known for the Oscar-nominated intergenerational divorce saga The Squid and the Whale. The project's logline is being kept under wraps, but it is expected to be set in L.A. and center on relationship intimacies in the manner of past Baumbach pictures.
Scott Rudin will produce Greenberg and Focus Features will finance and distribute; the specialty division had been in talks to board the project.
Shooting is expected to begin in March, with Stiller officially on board.
