André 3000 joins the cast of Noah Baumbach’s White Noise

Also starring Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig, the upcoming film is based on Don DeLillo’s 1985 novel of the same name

Back in January this year, it was announced that Adam Driver is set to star alongside Greta Gerwig in an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 1985 postmodern novel White Noise. Now, André 3000 (AKA André Benjamin) has joined the cast for the upcoming Netflix film.

Directed by Noah Baumbach (who previously cast Driver in his 2019 film Marriage Story), White Noise is now shooting in Cleveland, according to the Film Stage, though it’s yet to be revealed what role Benjamin will play.

The OutKast rapper was recently seen in Claire Denis’ sci-fi thriller High Life, and has also been working on Kelly Reichardt’s A24 production Showing Up.

White Noise is regarded as DeLillo’s breakthrough novel, and won a National Book Award. The plot revolves around an academic and his wife (played by Driver and Gerwig) whose joint fear of mortality comes to a head when an “Airborne Toxic Event” sees a poisonous chemical released over the town where they live.

Jodie Turner-Smith, Don Cheadle, Raffey Cassidy, and Alessandro Nivola (The Many Saints of Newark) are also set to star in Baumbach’s adaptation, alongside Nivola’s children, May and Sam Nivola.
