Wes Andersons French Dispatch Hits In July

Searchlight Pictures has released a new official synopsis, cast list and release date for Wes Anderson’s new film “The French Dispatch”.

Set to hit cinemas on July 24th, the film includes Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Adrien Brody alongside Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Lea Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, and Stephen Park.

The film is neither four hours long or a musical as has been previously reported. Instead it “brings to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.”

Anderson wrote the script from a story he conceived with Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Hugo Guinness.
