Grand Budapest Hotel
Despite earlier reports, Johnny Depp will NOT be starring in Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. Bill Murray IS set however according to Anderson who explained the Depp talk:

“The Internet has a way of announcing things on its own. You will find that even though I’m very aware of the cast that has been announced on its own devices, you’ll never find me saying who’s in the movie. … In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he’s not going to be in this movie”.
