Offers Out To Greta Gerwig & Cate BlanchettIt seems Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller are new BFFs. Of course, they teamed on "Greenberg" which hit theaters this spring and for a while, they were both tentatively attached to the family film "Mr. Popper's Penguins" until they both dropped off (the project is now moving ahead with Jim Carrey and Mark Waters). Not only that, Baumbach was tapped to do a quick punch up on Stiller's character in the script for the currently shooting comedy "Tower Heist," so it was pretty inevitable the two would find a film to work on again as director and actor.
