Wes Anderson is assembling quite the cast for his next feature film.
The untitled movie already has Wes Anderson regulars Bill Murray (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The French Dispatch, Isle of Dogs, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom), Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch), and Adrien Brody (The Darjeeling Limited, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch) among the cast.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Oscar-nominee Margot Robbie is set to take a supporting role as well. Robbie was recently seen in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad with more awards caliber credits such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Bombshell, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and sports drama I,Tonya.
He’ll also work with two-time Oscar-winner Tom Hanks, who is reportedly taking a cameo role in the pic.
Plot details have been kept under wraps and might be a while before we know what it’s exactly about or who the cast will be playing. I’m sure fans will be interested to know if Wes is attempting something more in the way of genre filmmaking (western or sci-fi) or still continue in the realm of quirky character-driven comedy.
A release timeline hasn’t been given but it’s assumed that the movie will land at Searchlight Pictures with a potential festival run in 2022 if the film is completed in time.
His latest movie, The French Dispatch, will be released by Searchlight Pictures on October 22.
The French Dispatch brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city. It stars Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Stephen Park, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson.
