“A few months after this conversation, the director shot his eighth feature, The Grand Budapest Hotel, in three different aspect ratios: 1.33, 1.85, and 2.35:1. The movie jumps through three time periods; the different aspect ratios tell viewers where they are in the timeline.”
Written and directed by Wes Anderson, starring Saoirse Ronan, Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Jude Law, Owen Wilson, Lea Sydoux, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, F Murray Abraham, Tom Wilkinson, Harvey Keitel and Bob Balaban.
Now that Wes Anderson has cast one of two leads, traction is starting to build on the director’s next project The Grand Budapest Hotel. Though most is being kept a secret for now, we can at least expect a small roster of regulars to return to help boost this new artistic venture. Now, we can count another Anderson veteran to return for the first time in nearly a decade.
