mistress-americaDean Wareham and Britta Phillips are reuniting with director Noah Baumbach to score the upcoming indie comedy Mistress America. The movie starring Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke follows a lonely college freshman in New York who is rescued from her solitude by her soon-to-be stepsister, an adventurous gal about town who entangles her in alluringly mad schemes. Baumbach has also co-written the screenplay with Gerwig. Both are also producing the project with Scott Rudin (The Social Network, Moonrise Kingdom, Captain Phillips, No Country for Old Men), Lila Yacoub (While We’re Young) and Rodrigo Teixeira (Night Moves). Wareham & Phillips have previously scored Baumbach’s 2005 feature The Squid and the Whale and their music was also featured in the director’s Greenberg, Frances Ha and Margot at the Wedding. Mistress America is set to premiere in January at the Sundance Film Festival.
