Wes Anderson approaches new high-profile names to star in his next film (alongside plenty of familiar ones)

Wes Anderson in Paris

Wes Anderson is, arguably, the king of assembling celebrated ensemble casts. Even if those casts are mostly comprised of folks he has worked with in some capacity before, he nonetheless consistently puts together a rather stellar list of names to headline any film he chooses to make.

MOONRISE KINGDOM certainly continued that trend, and if this list of folks supposedly in talks with Anderson is any indication then his next (untitled) film is all set to maintain the tradition.  "... Anderson is approaching a cast of Johnny Depp, Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe and Angela Lansbury to star in the film."  Anderson has been quoted as saying that his next script is “a film I want to make in Europe, a Euro movie.”

Now, again, these people are only in talks at the moment, and some seem a bit more likely than others to eventually sign on. But how incredible would it be if this did indeed end up being the cast for Anderson's next? I'd probably send him a bottle of rum in thanks. At least one. And maybe some cider as well.   And a box of Darjeeling tea.  It really would be the least I could do.

Extra Tidbit: I really hope Depp signs on. It would be a very pleasant change of pace for him, and really just an exciting and interesting path in general considering the general route of his career more recently.

Glad to see Dafoe teaming up with Anderson again! He was by far the best part of The Life Aquatic.

That is ONE HELL OF A CAST!

And weirdly, Johnny Depp, Goldblum & Jude Law's accentric presence are PERFECT for Wes Anderson's offbeat sense of humor. I really miss Goldblum, so this is a great welcome from him, and I also miss Depp's normal looking low-key appearance so (hopefully) this would be another fresh welcome. If I know from Anderson's track record, he shouldn't have any problem locking all these wonderful actors.....Looking forward to hear much more from this potentially exciting project soon!

I couldn't agree more. He needs to take a break from the blockbuster material for awhile. I love Depp, but I just haven't been excited about anything he's done recently. It would be a welcome change if he signed on for this.
