Bill Murray to Join Wes Anderson’s Next Film

In a surprising turn of events (not really), Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton are set to join Wes Anderson‘s next project, which is set to begin production in Spain this August, according to Variety.

Murray has starred in every Anderson film, with the exception of Bottle Rocket. He will next be seen in Anderson’s latest film, The French Dispatch, alongside Swinton and a star-studded cast comprised of Benicio del Toro, Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, Owen Wilson, Liev Schreiber, Elizabeth Moss, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Christoph Waltz, Cécile de France, Guillaume Gallienne, Jason Schwartzman, Rupert Friend, Henry Winkler, Bob Balaban and Anjelica Huston.

Swinton has also starred in a number of films from Wes Anderson, starting with 2012’s Moonrise Kingdom.

On Anderson’s next project, Tilda Swinton hinted that the film was not about Spain, with Anderson saying that he’s not ready to share any details on the film’s plot, but we’re likely to expect them closer to its release (or maybe The French Dispatch‘s, if it has any awards chatter).
