Moonrise Kingdom director Wes Anderson is lining up a huge cast for his next dramatic comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel, with Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, and Edward Norton joining the project. Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Willem Dafoe, F. Murray Abraham, and Mathieu Amalric have also signed on. Here's what the filmmaker had to say about his latest film in a recent interview.
"Well, yes, it's The Grand Budapest Hotel...It's a Euro movie. It's a period picture. I can tell you the cast...Maybe you already know the cast, but I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law, and we've got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel,Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen is gonna have a little part, too. Oh, Saoirse Ronan has quite a big part. I'm thinking if I've forgotten anybody. Yeah, we have a good group."
Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Saoirse Ronan had previously been confirmed to star. Wes Anderson is directing from his own screenplay, which takes place 85 years ago in a Hungarian hotel. No production schedule has been given.
