Swinton Off To Grand Budapest Hotel

Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel

Though he could be forgiven for resting on his laurels after the success of Moonrise Kingdom, Wes Anderson is plunging headlong into his next project, The Grand Budapest Hotel. He’s being typically secretive about most details, but has now confirmed the majority of the cast, including new bookings Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel and F Murray Abraham.

The trio – named in a new interview Anderson gave to the Hollywood Reporter – join a list that includes Bill Murray, Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Schwartzman and Mathieu Amalric.

Saoirse Ronan is said to have a major part in the film, though given Anderson’s usual style, she’ll likely be sharing the screen with the rest for a fair amount of the running time.

Anderson is largely keeping the plot close to his chest, but he has revealed it’ll be a period piece set and shot in Europe that will see the troubles and tribulations of Fiennes’ M Gustave, the hotel’s composed concierge.
