Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham and Harvey Keitel are on for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel
For those looking forward to Wes Anderson's GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, you may welcome this casting news that the director himself has revealed during an interview with THR.
F. MURRAY ABRAHAM. That is all.
No, it actually isn't, Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel have joined the flick as well. This news is actually the smaller part of a larger discussion on the career of Anderson. There's much on how he got started, met up with Owen Wilson, criticisms, writing, and much more. To read the full interview, head on over to THR. For now we'll just focused on the casting for his latest film.
The film will be set in Europe, will not be very family friendly, and follows, "The troubles and tribulations of Mr. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes), who serves as the hotel's perfectly composed concierge."
Here's the excerpt:
THR: Some people take years off between projects, but you seem to work at a pretty steady pace. On the basis of how many people checked out and enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom, I imagine that more people than ever are looking forward to your next one, which I believe is called Grand Budapest Hotel but about which little else seems to be out there. Can you tease it a little?
Anderson: Well, yes, itís Grand Budapest Hotel. Itís a Euro movie. Itís a period picture. I can tell you the cast -- maybe you already know the cast, but I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law, and weíve got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen is gonna have a little part, too. Oh, Saoirse Ronan has quite a big part. Iím thinking if Iíve forgotten anybody. Yeah, we have a good group.
