James Murphy to Score Noah Baumbach Film Co-Starring Ad-Rock
'While We're Young' also features Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, and Charles Grodin
After their winning collaboration for 2010’s Greenberg, Noah Baumbach and James Murphy combine once again. The LCD Soundsystem mastermind will score the director’s next film, While We’re Young, which stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, as well as Amanda Seyfried, Adam Driver, Charles Grodin, and Adam Horovitz — yep, Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, who popped up at Sundance thanks to his own score for No No: A Dockumentary.
This film, meanwhile, follows “a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple enters their lives.” The Film Stage, after announcing the film’s place in the Toronto International Film Fest, revealed Murphy’s involvement.
