We’re highly anticipating Wes Anderson’s next project that will be a post-World War II musical set in France. And there are some new details being shared by our friends over at DiscussingFilm. They’ve now revealed that the title for the musical will be The French Dispatch. Of course, the title sounds like the name of the newest Brooklyn hipster bar or band, take your pick.
Seemingly very on-brand for Anderson.
Anyways, we’ll be all ears when more details start making the rounds as very little known about the film.

Also, they’ve mentioned that Anderson will reunite with cinematographer Robert Yeoman, who previously worked with him on The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Rushmore. Another familiar crew member is Widows production designer Adam Stockhausen, who also worked on The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, and most recently the Isle of Dogs.
I’m assuming that we’ll end up seeing composer Alexandre Desplat confirmed as well.
Tilda Swinton is currently the only confirmed cast member as rumors have named multiple potential cast members. Those possible candidates include Bill Murray, Adrian Brody, Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, Lea Seydoux, and Owen Wilson.
Filming will be taking place in the gorgeous/quirky French city of Angouleme.
A release date has yet to be announced but 2019 is very likely.
