Wes Anderson’s Next Feature Will Reunite the Director with Owen Wilson

     May 22, 2012


Until Wes Anderson‘s upcoming flick Moonrise Kingdom, Owen Wilson had played a part in all of the director’s feature-length films.  While the streak has been broken, their relationship will carry on with Anderson’s next untitled feature.  Anderson has now told the Dallas News’ Pop Culture Blog [via The Film Stage] that the movie will be an ensemble piece, he’s written a part for Wilson, and the actor has signed on.  The script is halfway finished, but few details are known about the picture.  However, Anderson, who’s currently spending some time in Paris, did tell Harper’s BAZAAR [via The Playlist] that “it’s a film I want to make in Europe, a Euro movie.”

Hit the jump for a list of other projects on Wilson’s slate.  Moonrise Kingdom stars Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Jared Gilman, and Kara Hayward.  The film opens in limited release this Friday, and will expand wide in the following weeks.

The untitled Anderson project is yet another addition to Wilson’s busy schedule.  The actor is also attached to star in the action-drama The Coup with Pierce Brosnan; Shawn Levy‘s comedy The Internship with Vince Vaughn; Matthew Weiner‘s feature debut You Are Here with Jack Black and Amy Poehler; and Errol MorrisFreezing People Is Easy with Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, and Christopher Walken.  As long as Wilson brings the same energy and enthusiasm he recently displayed in Midnight in Paris, I’m glad to see him attached to so many projects.
