Noah Baumbach and Netflix are entering into an official partnership. Following the success of Baumbach’s recent collaborations with Netflix, the acclaimed director, writer and producer will exclusively write and direct films for Netflix for the next several years.
Baumbach’s first film with Netflix was The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Emma Thompson, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival. He followed that up with the highly acclaimed Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson and Laura Dern, which garnered six Academy Award nominations, including two for Baumbach, and a win for Dern.
Baumbach’s next film is White Noise, an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s seminal novel of the same name. Baumbach will produce the new film alongside David Heyman, with whom he also produced Marriage Story. Filming begins later this year.
