Wes Anderson’s ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ Adds Tilda Swinton & More

tilda-swinton-moonrisekingdom

Wes Anderson is no slouch when it comes to building impressive ensembles, as proven in films like 'The Royal Tenenbaums', 'The Life Aquatic' and his latest, the sublime 'Moonrise Kingdom'. Obviously not ready to limit the names in his stock company, Anderson's next film, 'Grand Budapest Hotel', is assembling perhaps the director's most wonderful cast yet.

We already know that among the talents in 'Grand Budapest' are Jude Law, Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Saoirse Ronan and, of course, Jason Swartzman (whew!), but today another handful of names has emerged. Check them out after the break!

Outside of the occasional television commercial, Jeff Goldblum sightings are rare these days. It's a shame, really -- the world would be a significantly improved place if there was more Goldblum, all the time. However, there's some good news brewing on the Goldblum Front today: it looks like he's officially joined the already bursting-at-the-seams cast of 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.'

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' has gone through a long period of ups and downs. Johnny Depp was first thought to play the male lead in Wes Anderson's latest, but it turned out that the internet was just pulling a fast one on us. Then Ralph Fiennes stepped into talks to take over the vacant spot, but Angela Lansbury bowed out.

Let's hope this next casting news sticks -- Saoirse Ronan, star of the upcoming vampire flick 'Byzantium,' has been tapped for the lead female role in the film.

Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest' is trying its best to assemble an exciting ensemble cast. Already on board are Jude Law, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray, while the names of Johnny Depp and Angela Lansbury have been associated with it as well. Depp, however, was revealed not to actually be confirmed for the flick, and, sadly, it looks like Lansbury will have to head for the exit.

But fear not -- it looks lik "He Who Must Not Be Name," Ralph Fiennes, is coming in to save the day! Nothing says "whimsical comedy" like bringing back Voldemort, right?

Way to go, internet! You jumped the gun on this one!

In all fairness, we were among the many sites that reported Johnny Depp being cast in Wes Anderson's upcoming 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' but it turns out that was far from confirmed. Mr. Anderson himself has cleared it all up for us: his film will have a great cast, but it will not include Depp.

Peanut butter and jelly. Jack and Coke. Bill Murray and Wes Anderson. Some things are just meant to go together. Murray and Anderson have collaborated on six quirky films together (including the animated 'Fantastic Mr. Fox') and it would appear as though a seventh is in the offing. Wes Anderson won't be making 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' without his good luck charm, and apparently not without 'Murder She Wrote' legend Angela Lansbury!

Wes Anderson is back! Well, he didn't really go anywhere, but the director sure does take his sweet time between movies. His latest, 'Moonrise Kingdom,' is not only one of our favorite films of the year so far, it's breaking box office records, so pardon us for wishing he'd work a little more often. Anderson fans still waiting for 'Moonrise Kingdom' to come to their city (or those wanting just a little more of a fix) are in luck: the filmmaker is apparently premiering a new short film online next week.
