Noah Baumbach’s last film, The Meyerowitz Stories, received great reviews from critics and made people remember how good of an actor Adam Sandler can be.
Now Noah is moving on to his next project titled Marriage Story, which stars the insanely talented Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson.
Driver plays a playwright in the middle of a nasty divorce with his actress wife, played by Johansson.
The official tease reveals…
In the latest from Noah Baumbach (The Meyerowitz Stories, Frances Ha), a stage director (Adam Driver) and his actor wife (Scarlett Johansson) struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.
This story is a personal one for Noah, who watched his parents get a divorce when he was a kid, and then experienced his own divorce in 2010 with actress Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Because I’ve gone through a divorce and also been through it as a child, there are things from my experience that of course I could draw from. But it also gave me a real opportunity to talk to friends of mine. I mean, so many people have gone through this experience, and it’s not spoken about a lot.
Marriage Story will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, and then will be released inside theaters and on Netflix.
