Wes Anderson just delighted the world with his recent animated flick ‘Isle of Dogs,’ and now he’s getting ready to shoot a live-action film in France.
The film, The French Dispatch, is reportedly a love letter to journalists “set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centers on three storylines.”
According to the reports, Anderson has invited some of his regulars to star in this movie, including Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand. In addition to his regulars, you’ll also find Timothee Chalamet, Benicio del Toro and Jeffrey Wright.
“Written by Anderson (and his posse), the film is independently financed by Anderson’s usual billionaire backer Steve Rales (Indian Paintbrush). We will likely see it unspool at Cannes and wind up with usual distributor Fox Searchlight.”
We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available. Insiders say production on this film started one week ago.[mashshare]
