Asteroid City (2023, D: Wes Anderson)

Bill Murray is among the cast of Wes Anderson’s new film that will begin production in Spain in August, Variety has learned.

Sources close to the project have confirmed Murray’s casting. The actor has appeared in nine of Anderson’s movies to date, excluding the new pic.

The as-yet-untitled film also stars Tilda Swinton, as she revealed exclusively to Variety in June. Though the film is shooting in Spain, “it’s not about Spain,” Swinton had hinted. Meanwhile Anderson had said he’s “not ready to share any details” about the new film.

Murray and Swinton co-star in Anderson’s “The French Dispatch,” which recently had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Murray is an old Anderson hand. Besides the Spain project and “The French Dispatch,” the duo have also worked together on “Isle of Dogs,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “The Darjeeling Limited,” “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Rushmore.”

The project is believed to have originally planned to shoot in Rome, but moved to Spain earlier this year. Sets resembling a desert landscape have been going up in Chinchůn, a small town located southeast of Madrid, over the last two months, as reported by Spanish outlet El Pais. However, the film isn’t believed to necessarily be a western.

I expect this film to be a hyper-realistic, straight-up relationship drama using handheld cameras in a cinema-verite style.

Now I'm wondering about a remake of Dogma done in Dogme 95 style.

Anyways, no surprise on Murray being in a Wes Anderson film I guess.

So in other words, "A Wes Anderson film, I'm in"?

I look forward to the completely unexpected casting of Jason Schwartzman and Willem Dafoe.

It'd be nice to see Murray get a lead role in one of Andersons films again. It's been awhile.

"Among the cast". Doesn't say he's the star. He hasn't been the lead in a Wes Anderson movie since Life Aquatic.

Hence why I said "It'd be nice" and "It's been awhile".

Ah, I read it at It'll be nice. Murray hasn't been the lead in quite a while in any film. I guess as long as he's happy. But his career would certainly have a different trajectory if he had an agent.

Hanks is definitely a big get but Anderson has previously cast:
Bruce Willis
Meryl Streep
Gene Hackman
George Clooney
Francis McDormand
Cate Blanchett
etc.

Granted some of those were only voice work but big names nonetheless. Weíre just used to Andersonís usual players.

That’s awesome. I’m sure he’ll fit in great. I mean he takes Ed Norton and makes him fun. Ed fucking Norton. I love Wes and his casts, staples and new. They’ve all been great.

It's weird we have so many A-List actors (and Adrien Brody) signing on while we still have no idea what this movie is even about.

Again no Luke Wilson Iím sure. Whatís the deal here? He was in his first three movies and ever since, Anderson has been getting bigger and bigger casts and brings back practically everyone. But no Luke Wilson.
