Wes Anderson has already started production on his top-secret project The Grand Budapest Hotel. Of course there are few things we know about the film, like that it includes his usual team of actors plus a few fresh faces. He has also revealed that Budapest will be set in the good old ’30s and that it was inspired by the great works of Ernst Lubitisch and Billy Wilder. Now Jude Law, who’s new to Anderson’s team, has given away a couple new details on the film. You can thank him later.
“It’s mostly set in the ’30s, [but] my segment’s set in the ’60s.”
Law also already shot his ‘tiny tiny’ part over the course of five days, and is very happy to be a part of the project. He’s a huge Anderson fan.
In Budapest, Ralph Fiennes will play the lead as a perfectly composed concierge. He’ll be joined by the likes of Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel and Willem Dafoe, as well as Law, Saoirse Ronan, and Mathieu Amalric. The film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2014.
What kind of story will Anderson tell this time? Are you excited for The Grand Budapest Hotel?
