Wes Anderson’s follow up to The French Dispatch is set to begin production in September of this year, with Tilda Swinton set to star in the film. This film will mark the fifth collaboration between Swinton and Anderson, who have previously worked together on films Moonrise Kingdom, The Isle of Dogs, The Grand Budapest Hotel, along with The French Dispatch.
Filming has also been scheduled to take place in Spain, with sets seen in Chinchón, a town southeast of Madrid. Though originally believed to be shooting in Rome, sightings of the western appearing sets have already been reported by El Paris, a Spanish outlet. While the film isn’t expected to be a western, Anderson has stated with Variety from England that he’s “not ready to share any details” yet about the new project. The location tracks along with Anderson’s usual process, as the filmmaker seems to prefer shooting in Europe, with his most recent project to be shot in Angouleme, France. Anderson’s last project to be shot in the states was 2012’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Anderson’s upcoming film The French Dispatch, about an American Newspaper outpost will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month, where both Anderson and Swinton will be in attendance.
