Wes Anderson's desire to return to the world of stop-motion animation has been known for some time, but it has now been confirmed that his next film will be a stop-motion animated affair which, much like FANTASTIC MR. FOX, will focus on an animal, in this case, a dog. It's expected that the as-yet-untitled film will feature several of Wes Anderson's usual players, and one of those usual players has revealed who will be be joining him in Anderson's latest.

Per The Nerdist, Jeff Goldblum was asked when he'd next be collaborating with Wes Anderson during a show with his band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. The actor revealed that he would actually be starring in Anderson's new stop-motion film and that he'd be joined by Bob Balaban, Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, and that they'll be playing a pack of dogs. As the film is still in pre-production, Jeff Goldblum didn't reveal any further details other than to say that the film would be "Japanese inspired".

After recently watching FANTASTIC MR. FOX for the first time, I'm already eagerly awaiting Anderson's return to the medium; MR. FOX was absolutely delightful and full of unique animation, yet still retained that Wes Anderson charm that many love (and just as many hate).

Are you looking forward to a new Wes Anderson stop-motion film? Which of Anderson's frequent collaborators do you hope will return?

I'm more excited about another Wes Anderson animated movie. But Jeff Goldblum is a fine addition to any cast.

The guy is one of my favorite directors and am always looking forward to seeing what he has up next. I don't consider Fantastic Mr Fox to be one of his better films (good film, but not great), so I am a bit disappointed that his next film isn't live action.

And I do hope he has a part in this for Bill Murray since the two have collaborated with one another ever since Rushmore.

I'm pretty sure all he has to do is call Bill Murray up and he'll make an appearance. Even if it's like The Darjeeling Limited.
