“Moonrise Kingdom” filmmaker Wes Anderson is still not forthcoming about the plot for his next project “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” other than saying it’s set in Europe and is a period picture.
He has, however, confirmed some of the names that will be participating. Speaking with THR this week, Anderson said:
“I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and 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.”
Production is slated to begin shortly with a 2014 release being targeted.
