Noah Baumbach Casts Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern in Next Film

As his current film “The Meyerowitz Stories” readies for an awards season push, Noah Baumbach has lined up an all-star cast for his next movie.

Sources tell Variety that the auteur has tapped Adam Driver, Laura Dern, and Scarlett Johansson to star in his next film. Merritt Wever and Azhy Robertson are also on board.

Plot details are unknown at this time, but Baumbach is preparing to write and direct the film. Netflix, who is handling the distribution of “The Meyerowitz Stories,” is handling financing and distribution of this movie as well.

Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories” stars Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller and has received some of the best reviews of Baumbach’s career.

Driver, who also appears in “The Meyerowitz Stories,” can be seen next in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” He was also recently cast in “Black Klansman.” He is repped by Gersh.

Johansson is currently filming “Avengers: Infinty War” and recently signed on to star in “Reflective Light” at Focus Features. She is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.

Dern is coming off her Emmy-winning performance for HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and is expected to participate in Season 2, which starts filming next spring. She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

Baumbach is repped by UTA.
