Netflix will soon begin production on its big new Noah Baumbach movie, which will star George Clooney and Adam Sandler. Here’s everything we know about the yet-to-be-titled coming-of-age drama.

Noah Baumbach is set to direct and co-write the new feature film who co-wrote last year’s box-office hit Barbie with his wife, Greta Gerwig. Baumbach has worked with Netflix on numerous projects, having directed and written the Oscar-winning Marriage Story, White Noise, and The Meyerowitz Story, the latter of which starred Adam Sandler. Baumbach, we hear, also had an animated feature in the works at Netflix called Escape From Beverly Hills that would’ve seen him team with Scarlett Johansson again after Marriage Story. Sadly, however, the project was recently announced to be scrapped.

Emily Mortimer is co-writing the script with Baumbach. Her writing credits include Doll & Em and The Pursuit of Love.

Baumbach, Amy Pascal, and David Heyman are producing for Heyday Films and NBGG Pictures.

What’s the Plot of Noah Baumbch’s Next Netflix Movie?

The plot details for the film are tightly kept under wraps, but it is described as a “funny and emotional coming-of-age film about adults.” Hopefully, we’ll start hearing more as production ramps up.

When the project was first announced, stars George Clooney and Adam Sandler were tapped to lead. Clooney recently directed The Boys in the Boat and starred in Ticket to Paradise. Adam Sandler’s recent credits include Uncut Gems, Hustle, Murder Mystery 2, and the upcoming Spaceman and You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah for Netflix. The actor has also produced a stand-up special for Netflix, with another in the works.

Clooney is best known for movies such as the Oceans franchise, Michael Clayton, and The Ides of March. This serves as Clooney’s second major collaboration with Netflix following the Oscar-nominated 2020 movie The Midnight Sky. He was also featured in the 2015 Bill Murray Christmas special, A Very Murray Christmas.

This is the first on-screen collaboration between Clooney and Sandler.

In March 2024, Netflix confirmed three more cast members for the movie:

  • Laura Dern (Marriage Story, Big Little Lies)
  • Billy Crudup (The Morning Show, Almost Famous)
  • Riley Keough (Daisy Jones & The Six)

What’s the production status?

Netflix’s Jay Kelly is in pre-production, with filming planned for March 2024. Filming is expected to take place in London and New York and wrap in May 2024.

What’s the Netflix release date for Jay Kelly?

Netflix hasn’t announced the release date for Jay Kelly, but considering a May 2024 filming wrap, we can very likely expect the movie to be released sometime in 2025.
