Noah Baumbach Officially Signs A Film Deal With Netflix

Noah Baumbach has signed a multi-year exclusive film deal with Netflix. Noah Baumbach has twice been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for The Squid and the Whale (2005) and Marriage Story (2019). He is now getting ready to sign a film deal with Netflix!

Baumbach’s first film with Netflix was The Meyerowitz Stories 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: “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.”
Netflix co-founder and chief content officer Ted Sarandos: “For more than two decades Noah has been writing and directing 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.”
Next up for Baumbach is White Noise, a film based on author Don DeLillo’s novel of the same name.
Baumbach is also working on Barbie, a live-action film directed by Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie, which is based on the popular fashion doll.
Baumbach’s additional films include Kicking and Screaming, Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg, Frances Ha, While We’re Young, Mistress America, and the documentary De Palma. Here is a trailer of Marriage Story:
