For indie movie lovers, a new Wes Anderson movie carries the weight of anticipation that a Marvel movie has for comic book fans. Over the last two decades, Anderson has become one of the most beloved writer-directors working, with an idiosyncratic visual style that is one of the most definitive and identifiable in film history. Anderson is coming off his second Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature with “Isle of Dogs” and will next return to live-action filmmaking with “The French Dispatch.” The upcoming movie marks a milestone for Anderson as it is his 10th feature film to date.
What can viewers expect from “The French Dispatch”? While the movie’s cast and setting has been confirmed, a lot of details surrounding Anderson’s latest directorial effort remain under wraps. One thing that’s clear is that Anderson has pulled actors and crew members from across his filmography to make a 10th feature that brings together elements from all of his nine previous films.
Below are all of the most important details we know about “The French Dispatch” so far. IndieWire will continue to update the list as new information becomes available.
