Wes Anderson’s GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL adds Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Mathieu Amalric, Jude Law, and Many More

Wes Anderson has never had much problem lining-up impressive ensembles for his movies.  Even his earlier movies have great casts albeit less famous ones.  In a recent interview with THR, Anderson revealed his next film, Grand Budapest Hotel, will have one of his best casts to date.  First, Anderson confirmed Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, and Saoirse Ronan were in the flick (Fiennes and Ronan are the leads).  But they’re only a small part of the large cast.  Anderson will reunite with Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Tilda Swinton, and Jason Schwartzman. Owen Wilson might also have a small role.  The movie will also include Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, and Mathieu Amalric (Quantum of Solace).

Hit the jump for more.

Plot details are still scarce, but the movie is reportedly in the vein of the films of Billy Wilder (The Apartment) and Ernest Lubitsch (The Shop Around the Corner).  According to The Playlist, Grand Budapest Hotel takes place 85 years ago, and will chronicle the troubles and tribulations of Mr. Gustave (Fiennes), who serves as the hotel’s perfectly composed concierge.

Since the film takes place in a hotel, presumably there will be plenty of guests, and that’s how the large cast could factor in.  The question is how big these roles will be, or if it will simply be a collection of smaller parts.  Either way there’s a ridiculous amount of talent on board the flick, and I’m eager to see how Anderson will follow up Moonrise Kingdom especially since Grand Budapest Hotel will be his first solo screenwriting credit.
