James Murphy & Noah Baumbach Team For New Movie Soundtrack

JANUARY 21: James Murphy attends "The Comedy" premiere during the 2012 Sundance Film Festival held at Library Center Theater in Park City, Utah.

James Murphy and Noah Baumbach are joining forces for another movie score. 

Former LCD Soundsystem leader Murphy will soundtrack Baumbach’s next film project “While We’re Young,” which is tipped to star the likes of Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Drive and Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz (aka Ad-Rock).  

The Film Stage revealed Murphy's role in the film, the plot for which involves a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned “when a disarming young couple enters their lives. Murphy and Baumbach teamed with distinction on the 2010 film “Greenberg,” which also starred Stiller.

Never one to court the spotlight, Murphy was in the news earlier this year when he launched his own coffee line. He produced Arcade Fire's "Reflektor" from 2013, and in the same year released Little Duck – a short film he directed for Canon’s Project Imaginat1on.
