Tom hanks has joined the cast of Wes Anderson’s upcoming film, marking the first time the two talented people have collaborated.
Wes Anderson is known for directing films like The Grand Hotel Budapest, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Moonrise Kingdom. His films feature a unique cinematic style with quirky characters and odd symmetry. Anderson has frequently collaborated with actors like Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton and Own Wilson. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hanks will join the ranks of Anderson’s upcoming film, introducing another talented actor to the mix.
It’s unclear what role Hanks will play in the new movie, but reports indicate it’s likely a cameo or a small role. The currently unannounced film is set to begin filming in Spain, with Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton set to appear in the project. Adrian Brody, another actor who has appeared in the Anderson films, is also expected to star.
While it will likely be a few years before fans see Hanks in an Anderson movie, they can still see Anderson’s latest film, The French Dispatch, which will be released on October 22. The French Dispatch stars Adrian Brody, Bill Murray, Timothée Chalamet, Elisabeth Moss, Willem Dafoe and Jeffrey Wright. The film focuses on three distinct stories revolving around a foreign French office creating its latest issue.
Fans can also see Tom hanks in the next sci-fi adventure Bullfinch on Apple TV + and Robert Zemeckis Pinocchio, where he will play Geppetto.
