Currently appearing in cinemas in a triple role in Luca Guadagnino‘s Suspiria reimagining, Tilda Swinton has lined up one of her next projects. She’s set to re-team with director Wes Anderson on his currently untitled French musical set after World War II. The duo have previously collaborated on many of Anderson’s films, most recently Isle Of Dogs.
The project itself has remained very secretive, and there is still very little information on it. Production is expected to begin pretty soon in France, likely around February. There are also rumours that big stars such as Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman are attached to the project, but these are unconfirmed.
While that perhaps sounds like too good of a cast to be true, it would make sense. Portman previously appeared in The Darjeeling Limited and its prequel short film Hotel Chevalier, while Pitt starred in a SoftBank advert that Anderson directed, which was shot in one take, in a French town, and inspired by Jacques Tati‘s 1953 comedy Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday:
It’s be rumoured that this short clip may be somewhat fleshed out into a feature of sorts, since it has all the components Anderson films usually contain; offbeat comedy, lavish locations, and quirky characters. But who knows at this point? We may have to wait until cameras actually start rolling to find out. But we do know that Swinton will be onscreen, whatever the film turns out to be.
