This may come as shocking news to some, but Bill Murray has signed on to star in Wes Anderson’s next film. No, I’m not referring to The French Dispatch, Anderson’s upcoming film also starring Murray that’s set to hit theaters in October, but rather the one after that.
Per Variety, Anderson is scheduled to begin production on his next film in Spain starting in August, and Murray will be on set alongside Tilda Swinton (who also has a role in The French Dispatch). So far, Anderson is keeping the plot of his next film close to his twill vest, but Swinton has hinted that the film “is not about Spain” even though it’s being filmed there.
For Murray, this will mark his tenth collaboration with Anderson, having previously appeared in Rushmore, The Royal Tenebaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, and The French Dispatch.
