Wes Anderson lands Johnny Depp for “The Grand Budapest Hotel”


Posted by on

If you thought “Moonrise Kingdom” had an awesome cast, just wait until you hear about “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Wes Anderson‘s upcoming project has put together his most impressive slate of film actors to date. In fact, they were announced before its title was. But now Johnny Depp is officially locked down for the movie (he’ll likely film this once he’s done with “Lone Ranger”) and Scott Rudin will be reprising his relationship with Anderson on the project, Deadline reports.

Still yet to be confirmed for roles in the movie are Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe and Angela Lansbury. Many of those actors are ones we’re familiar with seeing in Anderson projects, but it’s exciting that newcomers like Jude Law, Willem Dafoe and Angela Lansbury are interested in coming on board.

Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” is close to grossing $40 million this summer, which is impressive based on its limited release. Depp is trying something new by teaming with Anderson, so we hope that the director plays with his tried-and-true formula as well in “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” “Moonrise Kingdom” was a joy, but also was his most Wes Anderson-y movie yet. Maybe it’s time to shake things up a bit. We’ll be happy either way.

In a recent interview with /Film, Anderson teased that “The Grand Budapest Hotel” at least won’t be family friendly. He said (as we now know from the title) the movie will be set in Europe and will have a role for Owen Wilson.

“I have a script that I’ve just finished and that one I would say does not really follow that vein. I don’t think it’s… I would say it’s not very family friendly,” he said with a laugh. “I would say I did go from a movie that’s, at least theoretically, meant to be made for an audience of children, which was ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox,’ to a movie that is about children whoever the audience is meant to be. So there’s at least some continuity between those two.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
