Baumbach's 'Greenburg' pairing: Ruffalo, Adams


Mark Ruffalo and Amy Adams are attached to star in writer-director Noah Baumbach's next feature, "Greenburg," for producer Scott Rudin.

Plot details are being under wraps for the film, which is said to be a relationship comedy-drama. UTA is shopping the project in Cannes and financing is being assembled. No timetable is set for principal photography, but Rudin is aiming to shoot this year.

Rudin produced "Margot at the Wedding," Baumbach's 2007 follow-up to his breakthrough drama "The Squid and the Whale."

Adams is shooting another Rudin project, Columbia's "Julie & Julia," and is set to wrap "Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian" by the fall. Ruffalo is filming Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" for Paramount. (partialdiff)
