Venice Film Festival Will Open with Noah Baumbach’s “White Noise” Starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig


With all the Toronto Film Fest news, we’re now getting some intel on Venice.

The 2022 Festival will open with “White Noise.” Noah Baumbach’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s famous novel.

Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig star in the Netflix release. The rest of the the cast includes Don Cheadle, Raffey Cassidy, Sam Nivola and May Nivola (yes, the children of Alessandro Nivola and Emily Mortimer), Jodie Turner-Smith, André L. Benjamin aka Andre 3000 of Outkast fame, and Lars Edinger.

This is a big Oscar film for Netflix. They had a huge success with Baumbach and Driver’s “Marriage Story” a couple of seasons ago, and this one has all the markings of an awards player.

White Noise” will be screened Wednesday August 31st, in the Sala Grande at the Palazzo del Cinema (Lido di Venezia), on the opening night of the 79th Venice Film Festival.
