    Noah Baumbach’s new Netflix film is going to be an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel, White Noise. He has cast Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig in the lead roles. Driver will portray a professor named Jack Gladney, and Gerwig will portray his fourth wife, Babette. The characters have four children in the book.

    What do you think of Baumbach making this his post Marriage Story movie? I haven’t read the book but others who have said it’s difficult to adapt.

    I’m not a fan of him, outside of Frances Ha, which I think is his most original and inventive movie, but I’m excited to see Greta Gerwig back to acting. I think she is really underrated as an actress.

    The title of the movie is so fitting considering who’s involved

    Agreed! I thought she was fantastic in Frances Ha and she should have won the Comedy Actress Globe.

    When the news about this film broke, I noticed some Driver fans weren’t happy about him teaming up with Baumbach again.

    Honestly Adam Driver’s taste in movies and the movies his fans want him to do (rom coms it seems) are pretty different.

    I don’t have a problem with actor-director pairings. Scorsese does it all the time.

    Is Emily Mortimer friends with Baumbach? She revealed in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK that her two children have been cast as two of the four children: https://twitter.com/yasmin_omar6/status/1379731333233119234

    Controversial, but I feel like I’m starting to feel fatigued with Driver being cast in anything potentially baity. But I know that’s how these things work.

    Baumbach is an excellent filmmaker, the material is terrific (a DeLillo novel), Driver is maybe the best actor of his age range, and i find Gerwig to be a unique fascinating actress.
    I have no doubt this will be a unique and terrific piece of filmmaking. Can’t wait to watch it.

    I think one of the things with Driver is that unlike a lot of other actors, he doesn’t seem to be into taking down time between projects. The guy was on the Gucci set in Italy literally three days after wrapping 65 in Oregon.

    Yeah it’s really challenging material to adapt and I’m interested to see what this group of people does with it. We also know that Driver and Gerwig play well off each other – they were great in Frances Ha.

    I’ve noticed a lot of his fans want him to do a spy movie or a film set during the Regency era.

    hey he could always play Ken in Greta/Noah’s Barbie. That’s a romcom no? 😉

    He (rightfully IMO) turned down Hook in Peter Pan&Wendy and supervillain Kraven in Sony’s Kraven. Villian typecasting (isn’t he a villain in The Last Duel too?) plus he would be wrong for Kraven anyway. Also, 65 doesn’t sound like a bait and that zombie comedy with Swinton and Murray and Logan Lucky weren’t baits either. But because he had a string of movies bakc to back that ended up with AMPAS noms, that created perception that he’s only cast in baits.

    Personally, I would like him to do something like Shame and Boogy Nights. He has certain goods that should be seen. 🙂

    I’m sorry but this doesn’t sound interesting at all.

    The novel is incredible. Driver could win for this role.
