Published Sep 19, 2019Wes Anderson has confirmed the cast of his next feature film will include some Anderson regulars, as well as some newcomers. The French Dispatch, which is slated to premiere sometime next year, will mark the director's 10th full-length feature.
The film is set to star some usual suspects in the Anderson film roster — Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Frances McDormand, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman and Tilda Swinton are all involved. Elisabeth Moss, Kate Winslet, Willem Dafoe, Benicio Del Toro and Christoph Waltz will also have roles in the film.
The film's IMDB page casts newcomers Timothée Chalamet as a lead character named "Zeffirelli" and french actor Léa Seydoux.
So far, not many other details have been confirmed about the new film. We do know some of the filming took place in Paris, and according to IndieWire, it will be "a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th century Paris."
The French Dispatch will be Anderson's first full-length feature since 2018's Isle of Dogs. In 2014, he directed The Grand Budapest Hotel.
