Ifans, Larson and Temple Set for Greenberg


Director Noah Baumbach has hired Rhys Ifans, Brie Larson and Juno Temple to star alongside Ben Stiller in the dramedy Greenberg for Focus Features.

Written by Baumbach and produced by Scott Rudin, the story centers on a New Yorker (Stiller) who moves to Los Angeles to housesit for his brother and figure out his life. He ends up having a relationship with his brother’s assistant (Greta Gerwig).

Ifans will play Stiller’s best friend, who is going through a divorce. Larson will play Stiller’s college-age temptation, and Temple will portray her buddy.

Shooting will begin later this month.
