Wes Anderson Discusses His Next Film

Wes Anderson Discusses His Next Film

Hopefully you've all seen the thoroughly wonderful Moonrise Kingdom by now. If you liked it as much as we did, you'll be pleased to know that there's more on the way, in the form of a new short that'll debut online next week. And in the meantime, Wes Anderson has been dropping a few hints about his next film too.

The next-film snippets come from various sources, helpfully compiled by Rope of Silicon. To Vulture, Anderson revealed that the script is already written, and that the story was hammered out between himself and a non-showbiz friend (so no Roman Coppola for this one, by the sound of it). Domiciled these days in France, Anderson says, "It's a European story, and it kind of draws on my own experiences here." He said much the same to Harper's Bazaar, whilse also joking about making a movie on location in space...

Speaking later to Les Inrockuptibles, he revealed a bit more: "In my next film, the main character, who's a bit crazy, has a personal mind-reader whose assistant is a teenager." He also says that he probably won't need to travel the unknown-actors route that helped cast the Moonrise kids, but that it'll more likely be a project for his usual rep-company. "I'm still attached to my favourite actors," he says, "even if I don't know who'll be playing the main role." Murray! Schwartzman! The Wilsons!

Plenty of ammunition for the people that complain that Wes Anderson's films are too much like Wes Anderson films then, but for the rest of us, nothing but glad tidings.

The Moonrise Kingdom bonus short film, meanwhile, revolves around the various books that Suzy packs in her suitcase. "We had to invent them and give a little glimpse of each one," Anderson tells Coming Soon. "Different artists were doing them, and we've now animated them, each little passage in the style of the cover of the book [it supposedly comes from]. We've made a little short film that's hosted by Bob Balaban, the narrator in our movie. It's a little companion piece that will come out online next week."

We'll let you know as soon as it's up!
