Director Wes Anderson is getting right back to work on his new project, after the box office success of Moonrise Kingdom, which has earned $44 million worldwide from a $16 million budget. The filmmaker has secured Johnny Depp to star in his new ensemble drama entitled The Grand Budapest Hotel.
No story details have been released, although there is another report that indicates more actors the director is going after. Moonrise Kingdom stars Edward Norton and Bill Murray are on the list, along with Owen Wilson, Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, and Angela Lansbury. It isn't known if formal offers have been issued to this group of diverse actors or not.
Wes Anderson will team up once more with Indian Paintbrush's Steven M. Rales and Scott Rudin to produce. No shooting schedule was given at this time, although it is believed to be Johnny Depp's next movie, after production wraps on The Lone Ranger.
