About Wheat Germ:

Wheat Germ is a Netflix original movie and based on the novel White Noise by Don DeLillo. The novel centers around a train wreck, which causes a gas leak and a mass evacuation of a town.

The film will star Greta Gerwig, Noah Baumbach and Adam Driver. Driver will play a college professor who teaches at the local university and Gerwig will play his wife, according to wkyc.com. The movie will show the two face the toxic gas leak together.

Noah Baumbach is who is both directing and adapting the screenplay. Before Baumbach was attached to the project (it’s been optioned since October 2016), it was originally reported that Barry Sonnenfeld and Michael Almereyda were attached.

Douglas Aibel is working as the casting director for the movie while Mayra Auad, David Heyman, and Uri Singer are the executive producer and producer respectively.
