Jude Law Says The Grand Budapest Hotel Set in Two Eras
Fresh from the release of Moonrise Kingdom last summer, director Wes Anderson is hard at work on his newest project, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is slated for a 2014 release.
The cast includes Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman, as well as Moonrise Kingdom’s Tilda Swinton and Darjeeling Limited’s Adrien Brody. Anderson newcomers featured in Grand Budapest Hotel include Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones) and Jude Law, who told IndieWire “it was really, really wonderful to be on one of [Anderson’s] projects.”
Law went on to correct reports that claim the film is set in 1920s Europe. “It’s mostly set in the ‘30s,” the British actor said, “and my segment’s set in the ‘60’s.”
Anderson’s film are known for their atmospheric nostalgia and retro chic, but Moonrise Kingdom-set in the summer of 1965-was the first one to be set in a specific time period. Not many details are known about Grand Budapest Hotel, but the fact that it will be set in at least two different historical eras should cause excitement among Anderson fans.
