    Chris Cooper & Dianne Wiest To Star In Noah Baumbach's 'The Corrections' On HBO

    While the multiplexes increasingly become a place to house event movies and continue to enable the infantilization of moviegoers' taste -- 3D spectaculars, toy franchises, Michael Bay movies, etc. -- HBO is happy to write checks for big name talent.

    Scott Cooper Takes Over Director's Chair On 'The Emperor's Children' From Noah Baumbach

    It's coming on two years since Scott Cooper's country music drama "Crazy Heart" got Jeff Bridges an Oscar and launched the director into the stratosphere. He's certainly not been lacking in projects to move to next: he was developing the western crime picture “The Hatfields and the McCoys”; was shortlisted for "Gangster Squad"; signed on to direct a remake of the Argentinian thriller "Carancho"; he's also attached to the Comanche drama "Empire Of The Summer" and this spring, he came on to re-write and direct the Black List-approved "The Low Dweller." Phew. While none of those projects seem to have achieved any forward momentum, Cooper has rep...

    Noah Baumbach & Ben Stiller's Version Of 'Mr. Popper' Would've Centered Around Peyton Manning

    While "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will arrive in theaters this weekend with Jim Carrey doing his familiar rubber face schtick, you might remember that at one point "Greenberg" duo Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller were going to reteam on the film. Unfortunately, they both wound up dropping out but their wo...

    The Coen Brothers Sometimes Channel Tony Scott & 5 Other Things Learned From Chat With Noah Baumbach

    As we mentioned yesterday, this weekend is the opening of Film Society of Lincoln Center‘s beautiful new facility, the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, and opening night featured a candid conversation between the Joel and Ethan Coen and Noah Baumbach (note: the Coens revealed they are working on a new "music-based" film project). The event, called “Opening Shots,” saw all three filmmakers and mutual admirers examining the similarities and differences between the openings of their films. Clips were shown from Baumbach’s three most recent efforts “The Squid & The Whale,” “Margot At The Wedding,” and “Greenberg,” while the Coen’s filmography ran...

    Cate Blanchett In, Greta Gerwig Out For Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    Filming Begins Next SummerWhile we'll always long for the never-made version of "Greenberg" with Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams, the fact that Ben Stillerand Noah Baumbach are now total besties means that financing probably comes much, much easier for the indie auteur, and if that means he gets more films greenlit, then who are we to complain? It was with much excitement that reports broke earlier in the month that Baumbach was quickly gearing up another film, "While We're Young," a relationship film (shock!) with Ben Stiller and James Franco set to star, and with offers out to both Cate Blanchett and Greta Gerwig. And while we love both actresse...
