LOS ANGELES, CA August 6, 2012 - Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that

Los Angeles.  The film will star Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Julia

Globe winner James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”), Academy Award® nominee Catherine 
Keener (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, CAPOTE), Academy Award nominee Toni Collette 
Hewson (THIS MUST BE THE PLACE) and in her film debut, fashion blogger Tavi 
Gevinson.  The film marks acclaimed writer/director Nicole Holofcener’s fifth 
feature film, following her previous features PLEASE GIVE, FRIENDS WITH MONEY, 
LOVELY & AMAZING and WALKING AND TALKING, all written and directed by the 
celebrated independent filmmaker.  Anthony Bregman (OUR IDIOT BROTHER, ETERNAL 
SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) is producing.  Matthew Greenfield, Senior Vice 
President of Production and Erin Hagerty, Creative Executive are overseeing the 
project for Fox Searchlight Pictures.  UNTITLED NICOLE HOLOFCENER PROJECT will 
be released worldwide by Fox Searchlight Pictures.  The film will shoot in and 
around Los Angeles throughout August and September.

Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is a divorced soon-to-be empty-nester wondering about 
her next act.  Then she meets Marianne (Catherine Keener), the embodiment of her 
perfect self.  Armed with a restored outlook on being middle-aged and single, 
Eva decides to take a chance on her new love interest Albert (James Gandolfini) 
- a sweet, funny and like-minded man.  Things get complicated when Eva discovers 
that Albert is in fact the dreaded ex–husband of Marianne.  This sharp 
insightful comedy follows Eva as she humorously tries to secretly juggle both 
relationships and wonders whether her new favorite friend's disastrous ex can be 
her cue for happiness.

“We have always admired Nicole for her unique voice and storytelling abilities.  
For this film she has again delivered a distinctive and relatable script that 
this talented group of actors can really bring to life,” said Lewis. 

“I'm very excited and can't wait to start working with these hilarious wonderful 
actors,” said Holofcener.

“The folks at Fox Searchlight have wanted to work with Nicole for years and she 
came up with this funny, heartbreaking story about people trying to live with 
and without each other.  It's as full of life and truth as plums in a plum 
pudding,” said Bregman.
