Scarlett Johansson, Jason Schwartzman & Rupert Friend Join Wes Anderson’s Next Movie: Filming Begins In Spain

Wes Anderson is said to have started filming his next project in Spain and have added three more cast members.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit, Marriage Story), Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Scott Pilgrim, Fargo), and Rupert Friend (Death of Stalin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Homeland) have taken undisclosed roles.

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.

Two other newcomers includes Margot Robbie (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, The Wold of Wall Street) and Tom Hanks (Road To Perdition, Saving Private Ryan) are also among the call-sheet.

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.
