In case you weren’t aware, we were huge fans of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom when it came out this past summer. Packed with tons of charm, wit, and inventive imagery, this movie showed Anderson at his stylistic best, without feeling like he was treading on well-worn ground. The success of Moonrise also made us eagerly anticipate any information on his next movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. And in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Anderson finally revealed some actors that have been confirmed to appear in the film.
According to the director, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Mathieu Amalric, and Saoirse Ronan all have roles in the movie. Plus, he said Owen Wilson will likely have a small part in it as well.
We’ve heard some of these names attached to the movie before, but now we have the information set in stone from the man himself. This is an extraordinary cast of talent that can each add to the quirky tapestry of Anderson’s world. We’re secretly hoping that Harvey Keitel reprises his Bad Lieutenant role in this movie, but that might be asking for a bit too much.
