It has been two years since filmmaker Wes Anderson delivered his biggest success to date with “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and the director has remained surprisingly quiet about it.
All that’s been known up until this point is that it’s a stop-motion animated film and it revolves around dogs. Today, a new video is out which formally announces the project which will go by the title “Isle of Dogs”.
In the video Anderson also unveils the voice cast lead by Edward Norton as a dog named Rex. Also onboard are Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, F. Murray Abraham, Tilda Swinton, Kunichi Nomura, Harvey Keitel, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, Koyu Rankin, Yoko Ono, Courtney B. Vance, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Bob Balaban, and Liev Schrieber.
Production will continue in the United Kingdom for some time yet which means a 2018 release at the earliest. This will mark Anderson’s second stop-motion animated feature following 2009’s “Fantastic Mr. Fox”.
