James Franco and Cate Blanchett have reportedly dropped out of Noah Baumbach's next project "While We're Young" reports Just Jared

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

Franco dropped out due to a scheduling conflict with Sam Raimi's "Oz: The Great and Powerful”. Blanchett quickly followed though the reason is unknown.

Comedian-actor Ben Stiller remains attached. Shooting is slated to kick off mid-June in New York City.
