The story centers on a documentary filmmaker (Ben Stiller) and his wife (Naomi Watts) who begin to change their uptight ways when they meet and befriend a younger couple. Adam Driver is playing one half of the younger couple, with Amanda Seyfried emerging as a potential candidate for the other main role.
Noah Baumbach is directing from his own screenplay, with Scott Rudin producing. The project has been gestating for several years now, with James Franco and Cate Blanchett previously set to star back in 2011, before they both dropped out. Production is now scheduled to begin later this fall in New York City.
