A stage director and his actor wife struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.



In November 2017, it was announced Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, Merritt Wever and Azhy Robertson had joined the cast of the film, with Noah Baumbach directing from a screenplay he wrote. David Heyman will produce the film under his Heyday Films banner, and Netflix will produce and distribute the film.[4][5][6] In March 2018, Kyle Bornheimer joined the cast of the film.[7]

In June 2018, it was announced Ray Liotta had been cast in the film.[8] Speaking of his involvement with the project, Liotta shed details on the film's plot stating:

I'm a lawyer in it. Adam's [Driver] and Scarlett's [Johansson] characters are going through a divorce, he comes to me, and I'm a lawyer who explains all these ways we can get stuff out of her in the divorce, and he's, like "No, that's too aggressive." So he ends up going to court, and there he realizes that Scarlett has a lawyer who's really aggressive. So then he's, like, "Oh, s--t," and he comes back to me to represent him.[8]

In November 2018, Julie Hagerty announced she had been cast in the film.[9] In July 2019, it was announced the film was titled Marriage Story.[10]


Principal photography began on January 15, 2018 and lasted through April 2018 in New York City and Los Angeles.[11]
