Baumbach Lines Up Cast For “Young”

Noah Baumbach (“Greenberg,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox”) is lining up the cast for his next project “While we’re Young” reports Vulture.

Ben Stiller and James Franco are already attached to star while offers are out to Greta Gerwig and Cate Blanchett for the female leads.

The story follows a free-spirited Brooklynite twenty-something couple who inspires an uptight documentarian and his wife to loosen up – with comedic consequences.

The documentarian’s wife role was originally intended for Baumbach’s spouse Jennifer Jason Leigh but the actress just filed for divorce from the director last week.

Scott Rudin will produce.
