Fox Searchlight has dated writer/director Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel, and it’s luckily not too far away. The pic will open in theaters on March 7, 2014, where it should make for some nice counter-programming opposite the action sequel 300: Rise of an Empire and Fox’s animated feature Mr. Peabody & Sherman. The story takes place in early 20th-century Hungary and revolves around the goings-on at the titular hotel, with Ralph Fiennes playing a legendary concierge (Ralph Fiennes). The official logline is as follows:
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

The Grand Budapest Hotel opens in theaters sometime next year.
