Scarlett Johansson is the latest star to join Wes Anderson's next movie, which is currently shooting in Spain.
The cast includes several Anderson favourites, such as Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman. The Black Widow star joins other big-name newcomers Tom Hanks and Margot Robbie. Homeland's Rupert Friend will also star.
Little has been revealed about the auteur's newest project, aside from the few key cast members.
Wes Anderson is known for his off-the-wall films with distinctive symmetry, including The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited and Fantastic Mr Fox.
While this isn't the first time Johansson has worked with Anderson, it is her first time being included in the famous Anderson aesthetic. She was previously cast in Anderson's animated 2018 film Isle of Dogs, as Nutmeg.
The filming of the untitled new project is expected to wrap in late September, shortly before The French Dispatch debuts in October.
That upcoming comedy-drama also has an all-star cast, including Benicio del Toro (Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Timothée Chalamet (Little Women, Call Me By Your Name), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women, Lady Bird) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale, Mad Men).
Anderson famously uses the same actors repeatedly in his films. Of the 11 films Anderson has made (including this new untitled project), Bill Murray stars in 10 of them, Jason Schwartzman in eight, Owen Wilson in eight and Tilda Swinton in five. Some of his more recent favourites include Edward Norton, Frances McDormand and Bob Balaban.
Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch will be released in US and UK cinemas on October 22.
