Latest news from Greenberg
Posted by Peter Bowen | February 16, 2010
Noah Baumbach's Greenberg hit the red carpet this weekend, premiering at the Berlin Film Festival on February 14––yes, that would be Valentine's Day. Rhys Ifans, Greta Gerwig, Ben Stiller and Noah Baumbach all took to the Red Carpet and then later showed up for a Press Conference to to talk about the film. Eugene Hernandez of indieWIRE reported on the Greenberg splash, and the comic repartee from the press table:
“Somebody would say you’re a total idiot to hire Ben Stiller and not let him improvise,” Baumbach confessed at the press conference. “You idiot,” shot back Stiller, relating that he once tried to get Baumbach to consider a change in the script, but when it was time to shoot, the screenplay hadn’t been changed. Pulling back, Stiller praised Baumbach for writing so specifically and working so precisely.
