New details emerge about the latest Wes Anderson film

For writer/director Wes Anderson’s 10th feature film, he’s working a little closer to his home. Anderson, who lives in Paris, has set his latest live-action feature, The French Dispatch, in Angoulême in southern France. According to IndieWire, one source described the film as a “love-letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris.” However, it is not, contrary to early reports, a musical.

Several of Anderson’s regulars will be appearing, including Tilda Swinton (Suspiria) Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and mainstay Bill Murray (Isle of Dogs). Joining the cast are newcomers to Anderson’s films like Benicio del Toro (Sicario: Day of the Soldado), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) and Oscar nominee Timothy Chalamet (Beautiful Boy).

Other cast members are still rumored to appear, including Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, and Léa Seydoux. While all three have appeared in Anderson’s projects in the past, none are confirmed at this point.

The French Dispatch will be written and directed by Anderson, and independently financed by billionaire Steve Rales of Indian Paintbrush, who regularly backs Anderson’s projects. His most recent film, the stop-motion comedy Isle of Dogs, is currently campaigning for Oscar nominations.
