When they’re not making eminently meme-able photo opportunities at film festivals, Wes Anderson and Bill Murray are finding ways to work together again. Case in point? Murray is joining Tilda Swinton in the director’s next film.
Yes, while some filmmakers struggle to track down the notoriously hard to reach actor, Anderson has turned him into something of a lucky charm, a recurring member of his acting troupe who has cropped up in nine films so far.
Anderson and co. are staying mostly quiet about the new film, which will be set in Spain but not about the country. Sets are already being built and shooting is due to kick off next month. We expect quirk by the bucketloads, perfectly composed shots, dry oddballs and possibly a series of stories.
The director’s latest, The French Dispatch just premiered at Cannes (hence the famous photo) and will be in UK cinemas from 22 October.
