Now class, if you’ll all take a look at your handy guide to Wes Anderson actors, you’ll see that Bill Murray never strays far from the director, especially in a professional sense. After already appearing in six of Anderson’s films, most recently Moonrise Kingdom, Murray has confirmed another addition to the list.
Earlier this summer at Cannes, Anderson announced plans for Grand Budapest Hotel, which would be shot in Europe and whose main character would be “a bit crazy.” Murray recently revealed his participation to Vulture, saying, “I’m about to go shoot a movie with Wes Anderson in Germany.”
Johnny Depp has also signed on for the film, which is expected to start shooting in January. Other big names possibly joining the cast include Angela Lansbury, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Adrien Brody and Willem Dafoe, though none have been confirmed yet.
