Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller in talks for 'Mr Popper's Penguins'

Posted on

Variety reports that Greenberg‘s Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller may team up once again for 20th Century Fox’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins. The film, based on the 1938 children’s book of the same name, follows a house painter who receives a penguin from an Arctic pen pal. If Baumbach does sign on, it would be his first time directing a kid’s film. (Baumbach co-wrote Fantastic Mr. Fox.)
