Wes Anderson’s Latest Film Will Start Filming in Spain This Fall, And Yes Tilda Swinton Will Be There

A lot of the top filmmakers in Hollywood have two or three actors they love to work with, and clearly, Tilda Swinton is one of Wes Anderson’s favorites.

They have previously worked together four times, so this upcoming project will be the fifth. There’s not a lot of information on this film, but it was reported this week that filming will start in Spain this September.

In a recent interview with Variety, Tilda Swinton revealed that she will star in the project, specific details of which are being kept closely under wraps. Though the film is shooting in Spain, ‘it’s not about Spain,’ Swinton hinted. Meanwhile, speaking to Variety from England, Anderson said he’s ‘not ready to share any details’ about the new film.

According to one report, the project was originally going to film in Rome, but at some point it was switched to Spain.

Insiders say sets resembling a desert landscape have been going up in a small town southeast of Madrid, but the film isn’t expected to be a Western. So who knows what the desert landscape could mean, if anything.

Anderson’s last film, The French Dispatch, is set to premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival next month. It’s set for a wide release on October 22, 2021 after being delayed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And yes, Tilda Swinton stars in that one too.

We’ll keep you posted on this latest project.

Check Out The First Trailer For Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’

Yesterday we showed you the first poster for ‘The French Dispatch‘ and now we’re showing you the first trailer.

The Wes Anderson flick stars Timothee Chalamet, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and many more.

This is Anderson’s first live-action film since the release of The Grand Budapest Hotel back in 2014. That movie won multiple awards, including Academy Awards for Best Score, and Costume Design.

The official synopsis for The French Dispatch reads:

The film is a love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th Century French city and brings to life a collection of stories published in ‘The French Dispatch’ magazine

And much like with most Wes Anderson films, you don’t need to see his name in the credits to know he made it. You just know.

Check out the trailer below. It’ll hit theaters on July 24, 2020.

Check Out The First Poster For Upcoming Wes Anderson Film ‘The French Dispatch’

Wes Anderson, the filmmaker responsible for films like Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Bottle Rocket, is just about ready to release his latest film, The French Dispatch.

Searchlight Pictures released the first poster for the film this week, and you can definitely tell it’s a Wes Anderson flick. This poster works for no other filmmaker.

The plot of this movie has been kept under wraps, but we do know it “brings to life a collection of stories from the fictional issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.”

This project has an impressive cast, which includes Timothee Chalamet, Owen Wilson, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Benicio Del Toro and Tilda Swinton.

Anderson reportedly worked with a $25 million budget, which is the same budget he had for Grand Budapest Hotel.

The French Dispatch is scheduled to hit theaters July 24, 2020.

Fox Searchlight Has Purchased Wes Anderson’s Next Film ‘The French Dispatch’

Drop this in the, “Most Unsurprising News of the Week’ folder. Fox Searchlight has acquired worldwide rights to Wes Anderson’s upcoming ‘The French Dispatch‘ film.

They’ve had a long relationship with the filmmaker, and it’s worked out well for both of them so far. They have distributed four of his films, including The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs.

So what is this new film about? Well, Anderson had this to say back in April…

The story is not easy to explain. [It’s about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It’s not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what’s going on in the real world.

At this point, Anderson could make a movie about two big toes talking to each other and it would probably be nominated for an award or two.

The French Dispatch is scheduled for a 2020 release date, and it will star Benicio Del Toro, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet and Adrien Brody.

Wes Anderson’s Next Film Is A Live-Action Movie Titled ‘The French Dispatch’ Details Inside!

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.
