VARIETY – As his current film “The Meyerowitz Stories” readies for an awards season push, Noah Baumbach has lined up an all-star cast for his next movie.

Sources tell Variety that the auteur has tapped Adam Driver, Laura Dern, and Scarlett Johansson to star in his next film. Merritt Wever and Azhy Robertson are also on board.

Plot details are unknown at this time, but Baumbach is preparing to write and direct the film. Netflix, who is handling the distribution of “The Meyerowitz Stories,” is handling financing and distribution of this movie as well.

Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories” stars Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller and has received some of the best reviews of Baumbach’s career.

Driver, who also appears in “The Meyerowitz Stories,” can be seen next in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” He was also recently cast in “Black Klansman.” He is repped by Gersh.

Johansson is currently filming “Avengers: Infinty War” and recently signed on to star in “Reflective Light” at Focus Features. She is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.

Dern is coming off her Emmy-winning performance for HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and is expected to participate in Season 2, which starts filming next spring. She is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

Baumbach is repped by UTA.

VARIETY – Scarlett Johansson is in early talks to star in the Focus Features drama “Reflective Light,” sources tell Variety.

Art photographer Gregory Crewdson is making his directing debut with Marc Platt producing along with Platt Productions’ Jared LeBoff. The film is an adaptation of the 2014 Carla Buckley novel “The Deepest Secret,” which Crewdson and partner Juliane Hiam have adapted.

The pic follows a teenage boy who suffers from a malady that makes him gravely allergic to sunlight. If Johansson’s deal goes through, she would play his mother, so devoted to her son’s care that she has alienated the rest of their family, creating an oddly sustainable nocturnal lifestyle for him at the expense of her own well-being. When a neighborhood girl goes missing, the balance that kept them afloat begins to unravel.

Focus acquired the rights to the movie right before this year’s Cannes Film Festival and hopes to start production next year.

The film would mark a change of pace for Johansson, who has been busy in action and comedy movies including this year’s “Ghost in the Shell” and the Sony comedy “Rough Night.” She can be seen next in “Avengers: Infinity War” and is also lending her voice to Wes Anderson’s animated “Isle of Dogs.”

She is repped by CAA and LBI Entertainment.

I’ve added Blu-ray quality screen captures of Scarlett as Mira Killian (Major) in Ghost in the Shell. I didn’t see this one when it was in theaters, but I’m sure it would have been an even more enthralling experience on the big screen. Visually, the film is stunning, and Scarlett delivers a solid performance (as do the rest of the cast). Captures from the disc’s bonus material will follow soon.
