Wes Anderson is lining up an even more impressive cast than usual for his next movie, 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 been confirmed to star.
Anderson revealed the news himself in an interview with THR, “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. The film takes place 85 years ago in a Hungarian hotel and should start shooting early next year.
