While his tenth feature film The French Dispatch has not yet been released, the director redirects two of the characters in his new project.
Wes anderson just introduced The French Dispatch (with one year delay due to the pandemic) to Cannes film festival in competition. But the director is already turned to his next project, for which he brings together again two of his favorite actors, already present in this film. It is therefore about Tilda swinton and Bill Murray, informs us the American site Variety.
Cannes 2021: The French Dispatch, a charming (and somewhat vain) ode to the pleasure of writing
Bill Murray is one of Wes Anderson’s favorite actors, since he has been featured in the director’s films since 1998, that is … 10 feature films in total: Rushmore (1998), The Tenenbaum Family (2001), Aquatic Life (2004), On board Darjeeling Limited (2007), Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), Moonrise kingdom (2012), The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), The island of dogs (2018) and obviously, The French Dispatch (2021).
The shooting of Anderson’s new film will start normally in August and, as the director seems to have a soft spot for Europe (we already know that he is a big fan of French cinema), it will take place in Spain – although initially , the shooting was to take place in Rome. The film does not yet have a title, and it is not “about Spain” had implied Swinton to Variety in June. Anderson did not wish to reveal any details yet.
The sets have been set up in a small town in southeastern Spain called Chinchón for the past two months, and they would look like pretty desert landscapes, but that wouldn’t make the movie a western.
While waiting for its release, you can discover The French Dispatch in French cinemas from October 27. Courage, more than 3 months of waiting.
