Noah Baumbach's Toronto film goes for $4 million

While We Re Young

(Jon Pack)

Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young, which stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a Brooklyn married couple stuck in a rut who are revitalized when they befriend a much younger couple (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried), was acquired by A24 at the Toronto Film Festival. The U.S. distribution rights went for $4 million, according to Deadline.

“We are enormous fans of Noah’s and were completely won over by While We’re Young,” said A24, in a statement. “Noah delivered a multi-generational comedy that is smart, extremely funny, and incredibly insightful, and which audiences across the country will embrace.”

Charles Grodin, Adam Horovitz, Maria Dizzia, and Ryan Serhant also star in the film, which had its world premiere in Toronto on Sept. 6. The film is expected to open in theaters some time in 2015.

Baumbach’s most recent films include Frances Ha (2012), Greenberg (2010), Margot at the Wedding (2007), and The Squid and the Whale (2005). Though none of his films have become hits—Squid was the biggest grosser, at just over $7 million—they’ve all been critical darlings with notable acting performances, like Ha’s Greta Gerwig.
