Something that has caught the attention of more than one is that Wes Anderson’s films are full of recognizable actors both new and returning. An actor that we will always see in his films is Bill Murray, who has appeared in all except the first. Your future project is not going to be the exception. At the moment we know that it will be full of the most important actors of the moment and of course Murray it remains a constant.

Yes indeed. The French Chronicle (75%) (The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun) has not even been released in theaters. It was this year in Cannes, but its debut in the theaters of the United States will take place until October 22 of this year. That has not prevented the director from already preparing his next feature film.
We know almost nothing about that movie … not even the title. It has been said that it will happen in Spain and it is the only known information about it. The other thing we know is that it could have a huge cast. At least that’s what T saidhe Hollywood Reporter some days ago. According to that medium, his sources have indicated that the cast is going to be larger than in other films by the director. These are not words to be taken lightly if we start from the idea that his films usually have a large number of actors in them. For example, The French Chronicle It featured 53 actors, as can be seen on IMDb.

In the last days, precisely, The Hollywood Reporter has been revealing who is joining this movie. With all the revelations they have made it is very likely that the rumor is going to be true. That medium has just revealed some new additions to the film whose title we do not know: Bryan Cranston, Jeffrey Wright, Hope Davis, and Liev Schreiber. Wright and the latter also appeared in The French Chronicle. Bryan Cranston has already lent his voice to a character on The Isle of Dogs, but this would be his live-action debut in a tape of him. Hope Davis for his part he has not appeared in anything Anderson before. She is most famous for having played comic book writer Joyce Brabner on American Splendor.
It is very likely that other famous names will be added in the following days. Those who have been talking the most at the moment are Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie and Scarlett Johansson, the actress is still on everyone’s lips for her lawsuit against Disney, a fact that has generated unlimited controversy.
On the other hand, Wes Anderson He is well known for his style so marked, that to some it reminds a bit of magical realism. The interesting thing is that one of his favorite films is horror and to date he has not made the slightest attempt to venture into that genre. What tape are we talking about? Some time ago, the filmmaker told Rotten Tomatoes that the film that has had the most impact on his career and to which he constantly returns is Rosemary’s Baby (98%):
The movie I keep coming back to is’ Rosemary’s Baby. It has always been a huge influence on me and a source of ideas, and it has always been one of my favorite movies. Mia Farrow gives a great, great performance, I’ve read the script and it’s a great script.
It would be interesting if the director did a remake of this film, but that is very unlikely, actually. Returning to the mysterious untitled film that happens in Spain. We will keep you posted on any news about that tape.
