Venice also gave us our Greta Gerwig crumb of the day. Note: this is not Barbie-Related. On July 25, the festival announced that Noah Baumbach’s dark comedy White noise – with Gerwig and Adam Driver in their first couple since Frances Ha will open the festivities. Adapted from Don DeLillo’s 1985 novel of the same name, the story follows a liberal arts teacher (Driver) who teaches Hitler studies classes and lives with his fourth wife (Gerwig). Together, they face the threat of an “airborne toxic event” that puts their lives in danger. Jodie Turner-Smith, Don Cheadle, André 3000, Raffey Cassidy, Sam Nivola, May Nivola and Lars Eidinger round out the cast.
