Wes Anderson Reunites With Jason Schwartzman And Rupert Friend On Next Film, Shooting Begins This Week

While fans of Wes Anderson are undoubtedly hyped up for The French Dispatch‘s release this October, the eccentric filmmaker is gearing up to shoot his next movie in Spain this week. While details remain under lock and key, we’ve seen that Anderson is bringing in some new players for this, such as Tom Hanks and Margot Robbie, to go along with some old favorites. And now you can add two more that Anderson knows quite well.

THR reports that Jason Schwartzman is coming back for this one, having worked with Anderson on Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, and The French Dispatch. So they’re pretty familiar buds at this point, I guess?

Joining Schwartzman is Brit actor Rupert Friend, known for Homeland, The Young Victoria, Hitman: Agent 47, and At Eternity’s Gate. He was most recently seen opposite Mark Wahlberg in Infinite, and was also part of The French Dispatch cast.

They join Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, and Bill Murray among the Anderson vets returning for this still-untitled film. Presumably, with shooting set to begin so soon, we’ll be learning more.
