Plays Well With Others
Baumbach's collaborative spirit rose to a new level when he teamed with up fellow writer-director Wes Anderson to co-write Anderson's 2005 comedy The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Anderson in turn helped out by being the producer on Baumbach's 2005 movie The Squid and the Whale. Their friendship didn't end there. The two got back together to write Anderson's 2009 stop-motion animation fable Fantastic Mr. Fox.
