'The French Dispatch' will see some familiar faces returning, as well as some Wes Anderson first-timers.
Wes Anderson's previous movie 'Isle Of Dogs' starred Bryan Cranston, Jeff Goldlum, and Yoko Ono. It was an animated adventure set in Japan, when a "dog flu" epidemic spreads across the country, and we gave it a healthy four stars. The movie is rumoured to be getting some Oscar nods very soon.
Now, Anderson's newest outing 'The French Dispatch' has had its cast partially revealed and it's looking like another star-studded affair, as if you were ever worried. The film will be a live-action movie set in Paris (where Anderson lives); and local French newspapers have reported seeing various sightings recently.
IndieWire reports that the movie "is a love letter to journalists, set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centres on three storylines."
Set to star in her fourth outing with Anderson, Tilda Swinton will be back, as well as other Anderson veterans Bill Murray and Frances McDormand. There will also be some fresh blood for Anderson to have fun with, as Benicio del Toro ('Guardians of the Galaxy'), Jeffrey Wright ('Westworld'), and Timothée Chalamet ('Call Me by Your Name') are all set to also make their debuts.
There are some castings that haven't yet been confirmed, with Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Owen Wilson all said to potentially be involved in 'The French Dispatch' in some capacity too.
'The French Dispatch' will mark Anderson's tenth feature-length film.
