Wes Anderson confirms to MTV News that his “Rushmore” leads Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman will reunite for his stop-motion film “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” for 20th Century Fox.
“George Clooney is going to be Mr. Fox. Bill Murray has a part. Jason [Schwartzman] is doing a voice. That’s our team. It will take a couple years to do the animating . It’s like ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ or those Christmas specials. These [characters] have fur, so it’s not like claymation” says Anderson.
The film is based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s story, which centers on a clever fox who must outwit three mean, dimwitted farmers who try their hardest to hurt Mr. Fox and his family. Cate Blanchett was previously announced as the voice of Mr. Fox’s wife.
