Los Angeles, Jan 29 (PTI) Oscar-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach has signed a multi-year deal with streamer Netflix.
As part of the new deal, the filmmaker's next feature for the streamer is 'White Noise', an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s seminal novel of the same name.
The movie, which will reportedly star Baumbach's partner Greta Gerwig and 'Marriage Story' actor Adam Driver, will start production later this year. Baumbach will produce the project alongside David Heyman, with whom he also produced 2019's 'Marriage Story'.
'When I started in the film industry I dreamed of having a home. It took me about 25 years but it was worth the wait. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be making movies with Ted and Scott and everyone at Netflix, who are wonderful collaborators and friends and family,' he said in a statement.
Ted Sarandos, Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer at Netflix, hailed Baumbach for making 'some of the most personal and influential films in American cinema'.
'When we started to work together almost 4 years ago, he immediately felt like family and I’m thrilled we’re finally making it official,' he added.
Baumbach's collaboration with Netflix started with 'The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)', starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Emma Thompson.
The movie had premiered to rave reviews from the critics at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
The filmmaker followed it up with 'Marriage Story', starring Driver and Scarlett Johansson in the lead.
The critically-lauded movie was nominated for six Academy Awards at the 2020 Oscars, including two for Baumbach.
