Wes Anderson continues to collect some top talent for his next film. News has just come out that Anderson had landed The Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie, and now he’s landed an ex-MCU veteran to join his cast.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson has joined the steadily growing cast of Anderson’s next movie. We don’t have any plot or roles revealed, but we do know that the film will be shooting in Spain.
Besides Robbie, the cast also includes the likes of Tom Hanks and Rupert Friend; previous Anderson collaborators who will also be in the film include Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray.
While Anderson is already busy putting together his cast for this upcoming film, a lot of fans are still curious about The French Dispatch which had been delayed due to the pandemic and is now looking to come out to general audiences this October. With Dispatch looking to already push Anderson’s unique style to the limit, it’s going to be interesting to see what’s in store for his next movie. Is he going to be pushing it even further with this next film, or could Anderson actually hold back and tell a simpler story this time?
With a star-studded cast though, I don’t expect Anderson to hold back.
A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in “The French Dispatch Magazine”.
