How They Met

While working on Baumbach’s 2010 film, Greenberg, a relationship blossomed between the director and actress. From there, the couple became a writing duo, co-writing Frances Ha. They continued to work together while dating, and share a close bond that goes beyond scripts.

“When I was a kid, I used to do my homework in the living room, where there was a picture window. I was hoping that someone would walk by and see me looking very studious in my living room,” Gerwig said about her imagination as a child.

To that, Baumbach commented, “I know that. When I was a kid, I would fantasize about my own funeral.”

Though details of the film are still being kept under wraps, it is set to star Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, and Greta Gerwig, and is expected to be released on November 30.
