by | March 8, 2006 | Comments

Noah Baumbach, writer/director of the critically admired "The Squid and the Whale," is gearing up to begin production on his next film, which is currently without a title but boasts a solid cast. Jack Black, Nicole Kidman, and Jennifer Jason Leigh join Baumbach on April 2nd to begin production on the presently nameless tale.

Says Variety: "Jack Black has joined Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh in Noah Baumbach’s untitled film for John Lesher’s Paramount Classics. Scott Rudin is producing.

Black will play the husband of a young woman who is visited at her upstate home by her sister and 12-year-old nephew. Baumbach’s script originally was titled "Nicole in the Country," until that became too literal when Kidman committed. Pic begins lensing April 2 on Long Island."

In addition to writing and directing the Oscar-nominated "The Squid and the Whale," Noah Baumbach also wrote (or co-wrote) "Kicking and Screaming" (1995), "Mr. Jealousy" (1997), and "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" (2004).
