Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #36. Noah Baumbach’s Untitled Public School Project

Director: Noah Baumbach
Writer: Noah Baumbach
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Greta Gerwig, Lola Kirke, Rob Yang

It received one messily award season nom, but the terribly neglected Frances Ha is still verberating with us. While the pulsating B&W flick was anything but improvisational, where this coat-tail follower is deemed to be more low-key, less controlled and once again features a creative partner of sorts in actress Greta Gerwig.

Gist: Baumbach calls this is cross between “The Great Gatsby” and “Something Wild”. Lola Kirke plays a Barnard undergraduate who aspires to be just like Gerwig’s character.

Release Date: This will aim for a major film fest playdate to attract buyers. Cannes not impossible, where as Venice might be likely.
