Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic) has revealed during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he has already lined up the bast for his next film, a European romp to be entitled Grand Budapest Hotel.
“Well, yes, it’s Grand Budapest Hotel,” he said. “It’s a Euro movie. It’s a period picture. I can tell you the cast — maybe you already know the cast, but I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law, and we’ve got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen is gonna have a little part, too. Oh, Saoirse Ronan has quite a big part. I’m thinking if I’ve forgotten anybody. Yeah, we have a good group.”
Holy shit, what a swag. Evidently after the critical success of this year’s Moonrise Kingdom, top shelf actors are still clamouring to work with Anderson. It’s a particularly impressive run for Owen Wilson and Bill Murray, who have each clocked up seven films with the director.
Grand Budapest Hotel begins shooting next year.
