About White Noise Movie:

  • The film is based on a 1985 novel of the same name by Don DeLillo.
  • This is Noah Baumbach’s first time writing and directing a book-to-screen adaptation, and only his second adaptation after co-writing the screenplay for Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).
  • Both Barry Sonnenfeld and Michael Almereyda were attached to direct before Noah Baumbach.
  • Principal photography began in June 2021, under the working title Wheat Germ.
  • Filming took place in Ohio, including the University of Akron for approximately six weeks, Ashtabula Pine Lake Raceway and Trail Riding, Cleveland Heights, The College of Wooster, Wellington, Oberlin, Dorset, Hiram College, Andrews Osborne Academy in Willoughby, Kent State University, in Lowell Klienfelter Stadium on the campus of Canton Central Catholic High School in Stark County Ohio and in Perry Township, near Salem. The train crash scene was filmed in East Palestine, which would later suffer a similar disaster in 2023.
