Fox Searchlight Nabs Wes Anderson’s “Dogs”

Following their success together on “The Grand Budapest Hotel” in 2014, it comes as no surprise that Fox Searchlight is all set to re-team with filmmaker Wes Anderson yet again.

Less than a day after the project was announced online in a video by Anderson himself, Fox Searchlight has acquired worldwide rights to distribute his upcoming stop motion animated feature “Isle Of Dogs” – partnering with Indian Paintbrush on the project.

Set in Japan, Isle Of Dogs centers on a boy’s odyssey in search of his pup. The voice cast includes F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood.

Anderson, Scott Rudin, Steven Rales and Jeremy Dawson will produce the film which is currently in production in London and is aiming for a 2018 release.
