Wes Anderson Confirms 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Has a Loaded Cast, Adds Some More People
The bad news is Angela Lansbury is still out. The good news is that enough F. Murray Abraham can make up for any lack of Murders She Wrote.
In a fairly lengthy interview with THR, Wes Anderson has confirmed what he could recall of the cast of his next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. As was previously rumored/immediately assumed, many of the usual Anderson Players will be returning for the European tale, including Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, obviously Bill Murray, and probably Owen Wilson. As was also previously rumored but not as assumed, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, and Saoirse Ronan too will be involved (Ronan "has quite a big part"). And now the director has added some more names to the cast: Quantum of Solace villain Mathieu Amalric and the stalwart F. Murray Abraham, whose character's negligent fatherhood may lead to redemption in his autumn years. I'm just guessing.
