Saoirse Ronan hasn’t really done much in the world of comedy, but she’s going in that direction, even if Wes Anderson doesn’t create your usual type of comedies. Variety reports that Ronan has signed on for a major role in Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
No details have been revealed about actress’ character, but that’s not surprising as Anderson has been keeping the plot of the movie under his hat. All that is known about the story is that it is set 85 years ago in a Hungarian hotel. It’s said the film is inspired by classic movies from the likes of Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch.
Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, and Owen Wilson are all attached to star, with production is scheduled to begin next year in Germany.
