THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wes Anderson revealed the cast of his upcoming film THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. The period piece, which begins production shortly, will be set in Europe and is scheduled for a 2014 release. It is described as a "typically funny but also unusually tender story."
In the interview, Anderson confirmed the cast members who have signed on for the picture, sharing "I can tell you properly who it is: We have (Tony Award winner 'Hamlet') Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and (Tony nominee 'Indiscretions') Jude Law, and we've got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen [Wilson] 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."
Anderson directed 2012's Moonrise Kingdom. Among his other works are Bottle Rocket (1996), Rushmore (1998), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (2004), The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).
