Despite being a beloved figure in the eyes of critics, it is still remarkable to witness Hollywood’s biggest names gushing over Wes Anderson and eagerly taking up chances to collaborate with him. Recent reports reveal that Scarlett Johansson has joined the cast of Anderson’s upcoming feature film, adding yet another A-lister to the mix. But Johansson is not alone, as Tom Hanks and Margot Robbie are also set to make their debut in the same film. With such star power, one cannot help but wonder if this project will mark Anderson’s transition from an art-house darling to a leading name in blockbuster cinema.
Completing the ensemble are Anderson’s frequent collaborators Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, and Tilda Swinton. Additionally, Jason Schwartzman, who has been a significant source of inspiration for the director, will also be featured in the upcoming movie as reported today.
Filming for a new, yet-to-be-titled movie will commence in Spain later this month. The plot of the film remains a mystery, leaving the public to wonder what role Scarlett Johansson will be playing. As an esteemed actress who has been nominated for an Oscar, there is no doubt that Johansson will deliver a stellar performance in her undisclosed character. Wes Anderson, the director of this upcoming film, is known for his prolific output and has already begun working on it even before the release of his highly-anticipated movie, The French Dispatch. After experiencing delays due to the pandemic, The French Dispatch is finally set to hit theaters worldwide on October 22nd. Set in a fictional French town during the 20th century, the film revolves around an American newspaper called The Evening Sun and its editorial staff. This unnamed movie will mark Anderson’s 11th directorial feature, and fans can compare it to his previous works, such as Moonrise Kingdom, Isle of Dogs, and Rushmore, in our official Dissected feature that ranks every movie he has ever made.
