Our Fave Couple, Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, Are All Up in the East Village

Yen Din Da Kissa.

Yen Din Ka Kissa.

Last time we saw Noah Baumbach in the East Village, he was doing a q&a for his film While We’re Young. Today he returns to the hood to film a project that’s being called Yen Din Ka Kissa. According to a flyer posted near the corner of East 5th and Cooper Square, the feature, written and directed by Baumbach, “tells the story of an estranged New York family coming together in preparation of artist and patriarch Harold’s career retrospective.” Sounds like Baumbach is returning, to some degree, to the territory he explored in The Squid and the Whale, a domestic drama inspired by his troubled childhood as the son of Brooklyn novelist Jonathan Baumbach.

Get ready to spot some stars — the movie Maggie’s Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke and Greta Gerwig, is slated to begin filming in the East Village next month.

We spotted this letter today on the door of an East 10th Street apartment building, between First Avenue and Avenue A. The filmmakers plan to shoot in the area on February 23, 24, and 25 and are seeking a first- or second-floor apartment for interiors and exteriors. So maybe some lucky local will get the surreal experience of seeing Julianne Moore sipping a glass of water in their kitchen?
